D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance and Education. It is a drug abuse prevention education program designed to equip elementary and junior high school children with knowledge about drug abuse, the consequences of abuse, and skills for resisting peer pressure to experiment with drugs, alcohol and tobacco. D.A.R.E. was originally developed in 1983 by the Los Angeles Police Department in conjunction with the Los Angeles United School district. Based on the premise that prevention is the only long-term answer to drug abuse, the program grew to include all 50 states and many countries abroad. In the Cy Fair ISD, D.A.R.E. is a strong presence, creating a positive atmosphere for students to interact with uniformed law enforcement officers.
