D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is a school-based drug education program developed to help prevent drug abuse. This ten (10) week program places uniformed officers in the city's elementary schools' fifth grade classes, teaching children the facts concerning drug and alcohol abuse and strategies on how to resist the temptation to try them. This program also promotes self esteem and enhances decision making skills. For more information please visit the national D.A.R.E. website or the D.A.R.E.Alaska website.
