Drug Abuse Resistance Education
Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE)
The HPD DARE unit continues to fulfill the DARE America mission in, "Teaching students good decision-making skills to help them lead a safe and healthy lives".
To accomplish this mission, officers have gone through extensive training to deliver the DARE curriculum live to Elementary and Middle school age children. Students learn life skills, risk and consequences, dealing with peer pressure and standing up against bullying while living free from drug and violence.
It is our hope that the kids we teach, retained the knowledge and information to overcome difficult situations or challenges in life.
Mahalo and Aloha!
