D.A.R.E. To Keep Kids off Drugs

The D.A.R.E. program began in London and Laurel County in the early 1980s with London Police Chief Bill Smith and Lt. Judy Hoskins, also known as "The Mother of D.A.R.E."

Today, the D.A.R.E. program is still going strong. D.A.R.E. programs are scheduled throughout the Laurel County School District. Our D.A.R.E. officers teach students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives free from violence, substance abuse, and other dangerous behaviors.
