How many days until National D.A.R.E. Day?


National D.A.R.E. Day, or National Drug Abuse Resistance Education Day, is celebrated the third Thursday in April.

For local law enforcement officers, National D.A.R.E. Day is considered as a wonderful chance to come and visit schools in the United States and spread the word about drugs, how to avoid them, why they are bad for you, and the forms of abuse if you want to get involved with them. Most Americans will remember their special and dangerous vehicle when they go to school, often K-9s as usual and many items to show off and retell.

History of National D.A.R.E. Day

D.A.R.E. means 'Drug Abuse Resistance Education' and that's at the core of the experience today. The education takes place including how to identify students with high-risk and the secret language of drugs. Some great ways to celebrate this day are to help organize a method of educating parents and children in the school on how to identify where a drug problem may be.

When receiving any educational lessons by law enforcement, you can figure out some opinions by putting some of them into action. It takes an entire community to work together to prevent the terrible scourge of underground drugs from entering your neighborhood. Once they are identified, you can help facilitate drug prevention programs in your community.

D.A.R.E. is a program established in 1984 to help facilitate community education about drug abuse. The education required by police officers is the completion of 80 hours of training in areas such as classroom management, child development, and educational techniques, complete with communication skills. Those who will teach High School Students need an extra 40 hours.

They are invited by school districts to work with students there. They are taught in the classroom without having a license to teach. Each program has some different approaches for different people depending on their age. The purpose of this educational system is to allow officers and sheriffs to interact with students in a controlled environment where safety is a primary factor. One of the unwanted side effects of this program is that police officers are perceived as more sympathetic by those who have experienced it.

National D.A.R.E. Day is a great opportunity to improve the relationship of your kids and community, and useful in preventing the introduction of drugs from their lives. This program has gone beyond its original purpose of only covering drugs and street drugs. Since then, education has expanded to include smoking, inhaling things like showering, and how to handle pressure from their social media friends.

This year, if you're in the 24% of schools in the US, don't have a D.A.R.E. When the program is in place, you can use this day to try to help organize a visit from your law enforcement agencies to help present the dangers of drugs to the community. There is nothing more important than keeping your child safe from the dangers of the world and doing D.A.R.E. in your community is a great and time-proven way to help them.
