estherville pd d.a.r.e. class

In the mid to late 1980s the Estherville Police Department began to teach D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) in the Estherville Lincoln Central Community School District. The primary focus was on the fifth grade, with some classes being taught in kindergarten through fourth grade when manpower was available.

Through the years several department members have attended D.A.R.E. Instructors' School and have become certified D.A.R.E. instructors. After completing their training the officers work in conjunction with the school system, parents and community. They enter local schools and inform students about potential personal safety risks that may arise from using or abusing such drugs as alcohol, tobacco or other narcotics.

Instructors work with the students on other issues also, such as self-esteem, consequences, ways to say no, and gangs. The officers' primary concern is to provide information students may use to make their own informed decisions.

The D.A.R.E. instructors of the Estherville Police Department look forward to continuing to provide the D.A.R.E. program in our community.
