The Copley Police Department has specially trained officers who work with our children in the classroom. The DARE Program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is presented in the Copley-Fairlawn Schools. The subject matter includes lessons on drug use and misuse, personal safety, resistance techniques, decision making, and risk-taking.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our DARE Officer was able to have some DARE programs held virtually and eventually he was able to continue the 6th grade DARE classes in person. The school and Officer Harris also held a 6th Grade DARE picnic on Friday May 14th, 2021!!  

Thank you Officer Harris for a wonderful, yet challenging, DARE season.  Thank you also to the school faculty and of course the many, many volunteers!  Until next year, enjoy the pictures below and feel free to click the link to see other pictures from this year's picnic.
