Officer Kim Giugler - D.A.R.E. Officer

In 1983, Chief Darryl Gates of the Los Angeles Police Department and Dr. Harry Handler of the Los Angeles Unified School District met and discussed the drug problem. They agreed a cooperative effort might be more successful in the war on drugs than just arresting violators. It's simple supply and demand. If you can reduce the demand for drugs the price will fall. As the prices fall, the dealers will have to find another way to make a profit. 

Education and medical experts agree that a prevention program must begin in the elementary grades to be most effective. DARE is geared toward fifth and sixth grade. The program expanded to include a kindergarten through grade 4 program. Police officers now teach the DARE curriculum to elementary students worldwide. 

The DARE Curriculum - DARE is an acronym for the Drug Abuse Resistance Education. DARE not only teaches kids they should say no, but how to say no.
