CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Fifth-graders from St. Paul's School graduated from the Clarkstown Police Department's D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program at a ceremony held at the school on Monday.

The department’s two D.A.R.E. officers teach the program to young students in the Clarkstown area. The program not only teaches kids that they should refuse drugs and alcohol, and not participate in violent activities, but how to do so.

The program gives young people the skills needed to recognize and resist the subtle and overt pressures that might cause them to engage in risky and self-destructive behaviors; this is done by helping them focus on the development of positive social skills that will enable them to resist peer pressure and that popularity can be found in positive behavior and good choices, according to D.A.R.E.

The D.A.R.E. program is taught in 13 public schools and two parochial schools in the town.
