Editorial Comment - DARE Program Makes Kids Comfortable Communicating With Cops

Of all the programs on which government wastes money the DARE program in Door County is not one of them.  The Drug Abuse Resistance Education curriculum is being taught to fifth and sixth graders in five Door County Schools.

The only cost to taxpayers is the salary of DARE Officer Chris Neuville for his time allocated to the program. Neuville teaches the nine-session curriculum in the five schools each year.

DARE has earned the support of area educators who are impressed with the rapport Officer Neuville has built with students over the eight years of DARE in Door County.

With the increasing rise of bullying in schools, the DARE curriculum is being expanded beyond just drugs and alcohol. That alone is reason enough to support DARE.   

Door County Board Supervisor Hugh Mulliken has every right to question spending money on DARE. I would say to him, however, there are a lot of other places to be concerned about spending than one with an impressive record of making kids comfortable talking to cops.

The Door County DARE program deserves the support of the community and the county board.

That’s my opinion.  I’d like to hear yours.
