D.A.R.E. is taught by our trained uniformed York Police Officer, Scott A. Cogger.  Through the D.A.R.E. program, Officer Cogger teaches children how to recognize peer pressure, how to make good sound decisions, ways to say NO to drug offers and, provides positive alternatives to tobacco, drug and alcohol use.   One goal is to reinforce family values as well as keeping the lines of communication open regarding these difficult issues.

We urge you to talk to your child about the D.A.R.E. Classes. We are sure your child will enjoy the D.A.R.E. PROGRAM and that the lessons learned will last them a lifetime!  If you would like to hear more about D.A.R.E at your club or organization, please contact Officer Scott Cogger at 207-363-4444.
