Drug Abuse Resistance Education
Deerfield Police Department
The D.A.R.E. program empowers young students in District 109 to make sound decisions when facing encounters with drugs, alcohol and bullying. The lessons enable students to acquire skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives. Essay and poster contests are held at the end of every D.A.R.E. session which are sponsored by the Optimist Club of Deerfield.
