 PLEASE NOTE...

D.A.R.E. Is Different.  This is not the same D.A.R.E.  it was in the late 90’s. The curriculum has been completely re-vamped and educates children to meet today’s needs. 

The Canadian Chiefs of Police Association has endorsed this new program, and currently the only DARE Training Centre in Canada, is in Ontario.  Enrolment for the upcoming DARE Officer Training, Dec.3-14,2018, is expected to reach capacity, applicants can only be accepted on a first “registered” basis.  This training will include instruction relating to Cannabis facts and consequences, as well as training by a member of the opioid/fentanyl task force.   

 

D.A.R.E. Ontario is announcing a D.A.R.E. Officer Training, to be held at the Ontario Police College, from December 3 - 14, 2018.  Class size is limited, so please request space early.  Agencies requesting seats will receive Joining Instructions in early September.  

Included in this training will be evidence and research based instruction on educating elementary grades 5-6on the harmful effects of Cannabis and the importance of making wise and healthy decisions.

There is also a very educational training block dealing with Opioid/Fentanyl use/abuses.

 Transition to New Curriculum,

 I believe all Ontario officers have now received training in the new curriculum released last summer.

If not, please advise me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it and arrangements will be made to accomodate this.

The new curriculum MUST be taught as of September 2013. 

The D.A.R.E. curriculum is designed to be taught by police officers whose training and experience gave them the background needed to answer the sophisticated questions often posed by young students about drugs and crime. Prior to entering the D.A.R.E. program, officers undergo 80 hours of special training in areas such as child development, classroom management, teaching techniques, and communication skills. 40 hours of additional training are provided to D.A.R.E. instructors to prepare them to teach the high school curriculum.

 "DID YOU KNOW"  --- D.A.R.E.  Launches New   '"HIGH SCHOOL CURRICULUM"  -  now being delivered as part of the D.A.R.E. Officer Training.   Last summer, the new High School program was released and has proven to be a highly sought after resource for educating students at this vulnerable level. The curricula contains three distinct modules - REAL Messages,  My Playbook (with an optional segment for student athletes) and a collection of stand alone presentations, the first of which is   Celebrating Safely.   The curricula components are independent, but supportive of one another, and can be implemented individually or as a complete suite.  This curricula is very officer friendly.  Students obtain an on-line identity with DARE, and complete the segments on-line, without the officer being present.
This new curricula offers educators and law enforcement flexible and cost-effective options for providing students with relevant and timely tools to exercise responsible decision making. 


.
New K-2 Curriculum introduced..
A new K-2curriculum was introduced.  It has been updated to meet the needs of our current trends at that age level.  New charts have been introduced.     The format is the same with the topic picture on front and your lesson plan on the back.   If you are teaching this level, even on an occasional basis, just e-mail me and request a copy of the charts and I will get them to you. 
As Always, Partners in Prevention.

Check out our D.A.R.E. items and support the D.A.R.E. movement. 

 D.A.R.E. Ontario is able to train selected Police Officers to teach the D.A.R.E. program due to the generous support of a few corporate sponsors.  The next time you see a table set up, displaying the DARE banner, and licensed merchandise, please know that a large percentage of your purchase goes directly to training a Police Officer to become a DARE Officer or Mentor.

The agents who represent D.A.R.E. are licensed by the Province of Ontario and by D.A.R.E. to sell these trademark items as part of D.A.R.E. Ontario's fundraising initiatives.

The two week training course is a mandatory requirement and must be sucessfully completed in order for the officer to teach the program. The cost to train each officer is approximately $1500.00 and thankfully due to your support through purchasing this merchandise, we are able to sustain teaching our most valuable resource, our children.

Also, donations received from these merchandisers, supports already trained officers with curriculum updates and changes.

So, thank you very much for your support for this very worthwhile program, which puts a skillfully trained, experienced Police Officer in the classroom for one hour each week for 10 weeks.  A small price to pay for the educational value our children will receive.

We are also looking at venues to hold a DARE Ontario Training update, and networking conference in the upcoming months.  So please ,visit these tables if they come to your area, so we can gain support for you and the program.
