D.A.R.E./Municipal Alliance

The Park Ridge Police Department has sponsored a Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program since 1989.  The purpose of this program is top teach kids about the hazards of alcohol and drug abuse, as well as the dangers of violence.  The core grade level of the program is the fifth grade, where a Police Officer visits each class once a week for ten weeks, and talks about such topics as tobacco, alcohol, drugs, friendships, leadership and personal action.

If you would like to volunteer to serve on the DARE Committee, or become involved in any way, please contact P.O. Scott Malloy at 201-391-5400, ext. 5328 or at
