What is D.A.R.E.?
Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is a program for young students, instructed by uniformed
law enforcement officers. D.A.R.E. instructors work with students to raise their self-esteem, teach them how to make decisions
on their own and help them identify positive alternatives to drugs.
Since 1990, Broken Bow Police Department and Custer County Sheriff's Office have brought the D.A.R.E. Program to
approximately 300 fifth and sixth graders in the county each year.
In Broken Bow, the program involves three classes of fifth graders at Custer Elementary School, averaging 75 to 80 total students
per year. Following the 10- week program, students celebrate completion of the class with D.A.R.E. graduation and
a Lock-In Party that further reinforces peer acceptance of a drug-free lifestyle.
