D.A.R.E. Awards Given in Lansingburgh's Rensselaer Park Elementary School

Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) graduation ceremony was held at Rensselaer Park Elementary, Lansingburgh on February 6th. 

Students were awarded certificates of completion from Rensselaer County’s Deputy Russo. The D.A.R.E. program teaches students good decision-making skills to help those lead safe and responsible lives. The new curriculum of D.A.R.E. (Define, Assess, Respond, Evaluate) focuses more on decision-making processes and how to apply that to any aspect of life.
