D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education)

2011 D.A.R.E. Vehicle

Summer D.A.R.E. Camp Graduation

The primary mission of the La Porte Police D.A.R.E. program is to provide children with the information and skills they need to live drug-and-violence-free lives. Our department fulfills this mission by equiping kids with the tools that will enable them to avoid negative influences and instead, allows them to focus on their strengths and potential; exactly what D.A.R.E. is designed to do.

Additionally, the D.A.R.E. program establishes positive relationships between students and law enforcement, teachers, parents, and other community leaders. Every youngster should have the opportunity to grow-up healthy, safe, secure, and equipped with the skills needed to succeed in life. Contemporary America, however, is rampant with challenges that could keep children from a positive life path. D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is a collaborative program in which local law enforcement and local schools join together to educate students about the personal and social consequences of substance abuse and violence.
