D.A.R.E. Graduation Ceremony Held

Williamson County Sheriff's officers conduct D.A.R.E.® courses in public or private schools. These courses have a set curriculum over several weeks covering drug and violence prevention education for children in kindergarten through 12th grade. Sheriff's officers have received many hours of special training to be equipped with all the skills they need to teach a course in drug resistance and violence avoidance techniques. Although the courses vary by age group, D.A.R.E.® lessons focus on:

  • providing accurate information about alcohol and drugs
  • teaching students decision-making skills
  • showing them how to resist peer pressure
  • giving them ideas for alternatives to drug use and violence

The D.A.R.E. Mission:
“Teaching students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives”

The D.A.R.E. Vision:
“A world in which students everywhere are empowered to respect others and choose to lead lives free from violence, substance abuse, and other dangerous behaviors.”

A Vital Mission… to Fulfill a Vision
