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.

Thank you, Officer Harris, for another wonderful DARE season. Officer Harris held the 6th Grade DARE picnic on Friday May 19, 2023.  Another shout-out to Mike and John Plevris who own Plevris Auto Service and Copley Auto & Collision for their continued support and sponsorship of our DARE program. This year, Officer Harris had the 6th grade students work in groups and design the logo for the back of the shirts. After a lot of hard work, and voting, the kids ultimately voted for this year's design.  Wonderful words of wisdom we should all follow! Thank you to the PTA for all your hard work, without you these events would never run as smoothly as they do! Another shout out to the local businesses that donated gift cards/coupons to the students! Thank you, Rizzi's Pizzeria, Dairy Queen, Arby's and Chick-fil-a, we appreciate all you do to support the Copley Police Department and the Copley Community!!
