Retired DARE Officers

Retired Officers approved to teach D.A.R.E.

For years D.A.R.E. has depended on law enforcement agencies to allow their employees to teach D.A.R.E. during duty time. With the national economy changing, agencies have needed to be more creative in how they support the D.A.R.E. program. Agencies are now turning to retired officers to teach the program. With communities demanding D.A.R.E. and agencies budgets being cut, the retired officer has been a successful solution to the problem.

D.A.R.E. America supports the use of retired officers teaching D.A.R.E.

It is requested that retired officer that take on this role teach in some form of uniform and that a law enforcement agency support this officer with materials for teaching.

NYSDOA can assist law enforcement agencies and retired DARE officers. Please feel free to contact us for more information and support. Please send an email to NYSDOA at nysdoa@yahoo.com with questions and/or request.
