D.A.R.E. Program

Conway Police Department

D.A.R.E., Drug Abuse Resistance Education, is a 9 week series of classes taught by uniformed police officers in the classrooms of 6th grade students within the Town of Conway. D.A.R.E. is designed to provide solid information about drug use and violence and the power of positive decision making. D.A.R.E. officers talk about the realities of why individuals become involved or exposed to drug use, and the consequences choosing to engage in such behavior. D.A.R.E. students demonstrate recognition of peer pressure and practice better skills in dealing with those pressures. D.A.R.E. students are encouraged to strengthen family relationships and seek out genuine and healthy friendships with other students who choose not to use drugs. D.A.R.E. Officers discuss the importance of being involved in activities that provide fun, excitement and challenges. D.A.R.E. alone cannot guarantee freedom from drug use or exposure for our kids. D.A.R.E. is but one of the vital elements in drug and violence prevention networks within our community. The D.A.R.E. officers of Northern New Hampshire challenge each and every one of you to become more involved in your community. Please feel free to contact one of our Conway Police Department D.A.R.E. officers to learn more about the program.
