Charles County Sheriff Rex W. Coffey is pleased to announce the graduation of PFC. M. DePaulo from D.A.R.E. instructor training held Aug. 22 – Sept. 2 at the Public Safety Education and Training Center in Sykesville, MD. PFC. DePaulo was among 20 other officers from across the region to complete the two-week certification course to become one of the nation’s newest Drug Abuse Resistance Education instructors.

D.A.R.E. is a community based program which links law enforcement, schools and parents together to teach children how to prevent drug use and abuse. The class is taught by uniformed police officers who present information to children in a classroom environment providing resistance skills and methods on building resiliency.

D.A.R.E. instructors are certified to deliver programs at the K-4, Elementary and Middle School level, as well as a selection of lessons regarding bullying, gangs, internet safety, cyber-bullying, Rx/OTC drugs, and other issues.

With PFC. DePaulo’s graduation, there are a total of 14 D.A.R.E. instructors with the Charles County Sheriff’s Office. For more information, visit www.ccso.us.
