Law Enforcement School-Based Programs

COMBAT funds school-based education programs for nine different law enforcement agencies in Jackson County.

Many of these programs are based on the DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) curriculum, which consists of 10 lessons that encourage students to participating in group projects, role-playing, pair discussions, games and more. Each lesson is designed to promote interaction among the students, as well as between the students and their teacher. Most of the police departments have customized their DARE programs to meet their students' specific needs. Some have paired DARE with GREAT (Gang Resistance Education And Training).
