D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is a highly-acclaimed program that gives kids the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, and violence. The program involves a series of classroom lessons led by police officers that teaches children from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug- and violence-free lives.
The La Crosse D.A.R.E. program started in 1989 and the City currently employs two full-time D.A.R.E. officers. The program is funded entirely by donations from the community.
