The Menomonee Falls Police Department, in conjunction with the Menomonee Falls schools, presents a drug and violence education and prevention program titled D.A.R.E. at community schools.
The acronym D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. The aim of the program is to equip youth with the skills to resist peer pressure to experiment with and the use of harmful drugs.
One of the unique features of the D.A.R.E. program is the use of police officers as instructors in the classroom. This has helped to forge a positive relationship between officers and youth of our community.
The D.A.R.E. lessons focus on four major areas:
- Providing accurate information about alcohol and drugs
- Teaching students decision making skills
- Showing them how to resist peer pressure
- Giving them some ideas for alternatives to drug use and violence
Currently D.A.R.E. is taught in 9 public and parochial schools and reaches well over 500 students per year. D.A.R.E. is taught during a student's fifth grade year.
