SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT D.A.R.E. PROGRAM

The D.A.R.E. curriculum focuses on four major areas:

  • PROVIDING ACCURATE INFORMATION ABOUT ALCOHOL AND DRUGS
  • TEACHING STUDENTS DECISION MAKING SKILLS
  • SHOWING THEM HOW TO RESIST PEER PRESSURE
  • HELPING THEM DEVELOP ALTERNATIVES TO DRUG USE

D.A.R.E.  –  Drug  Abuse  Resistance  Education is a preventative program that was developed in Los Angeles. Uniformed officers are selected and trained to teach the D.A.R.E. lessons in schools. Their primary function is to instruct and show students how to develop the skills necessary to be able to resist the pressure to use drugs and alcohol.

In Sylvania Township, the D.A.R.E. principles are taught in the 5th grade.
