2.  To provide opportunities for D.A.R.E. Officers to link their programs and become better informed about programs across the state. By the end of D.A.R.E. In-Service training, officers will have spoken with other agencies and created 3 new ideas to benefit their D.A.R.E. programs.
3.  To provide various supplies to D.A.R.E. Officers to lessen the burden of their agencies. By the end of D.A.R.E. In-Service training, every officer in attendance will receive D.A.R.E. supplies (books, pencils, stickers, etc…) they can use during their instruction time.
