The D.A.R.E.Program

D.A.R.E. is a cooperative program between law enforcement and schools to help prevent drug abuse and to help students make life-long healthy decisions.

Many experts in education and medicine believe substance abuse prevention must begin early. D.A.R.E.targets students when they are the most vulnerable to try drugs or alcohol. The D.A.R.E.lessons help children build their self-esteem, manage stress, foresee behavioral consequences, resist pro-drug messages, and identify alternatives to drug use. It doesn’t just tell them to say “NO”; It teaches them how to say “NO”.

The Union Police Department has 2 current D.A.R.E.officers, Officer Rod Tappe and Officer Kevin Anderson. The department has three officers who are past D.A.R.E. officers. Chief Norman Brune, Lt. Kyle Kitcher, and Officer John Monroe. D.A.R.E. was introduced into the Union schools January of 1989. The program was directed towards the 5th grade students.


The D.A.R.E. curriculum reaches 165 to 180 students each year at Clark Vitt Elementary, 50-60 students each year at Beaufort Elementary, and 35-40 students each year at Immaculate Conception. D.A.R.E. at Beaufort Elementary is taught by the Franklin County Sheriff’s
