The Enterprise Police Department's D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program was established in 1990. Initially the program was presented only to the 6th grade classes in each of our six elementary schools, since then it has grown to educate the students at Jr. High and High School levels, serving approximately 5200 students. The curriculum is presented to kindergarten, first grade, third grade, sixth grade, and several special education classes.
The D.A.R.E. program enjoys an excellent relationship with the faculty and staff of the school system. Support has been overwhelming, and indications are that the program is working. The program has fostered a very positive environment among the police, students, and teachers.
In an effort to encourage student involvement in the program, the police have sponsored various shows and contests. Among these were: Best Class, Most Outstanding Class, Name the Program, Design a T-Shirt, an essay contest, a banner contest, and a K-9 Demonstration.
The students also enjoyed a tour of our D.A.R.E. vehicle. The D.A.R.E. car is a 1986 Chevy Camaro painted red with gold flakes. It has several bells and whistles, but most importantly to the kids it has a loud stereo system! Since the D.A.R.E program is a community program to better our local youth, we invite your questions and comments. With your input, we are better armed to go into the community and local schools to educate our children to be better more informed people. Please feel free to call the police department at (334) 347-1211 ext 234 or E-Mail your request from this site.
Thank you for your support!
