The Copley Police Department has specially trained officers who work with our children in the classroom. The DARE Program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is presented in the Copley-Fairlawn Schools. The subject matter includes lessons on drug use and misuse, personal safety, resistance techniques, decision-making, and risk-taking.

Thank you Officer Harris for another wonderful DARE season. Officer Harris held the 8th Grade DARE graduation on Thursday, November 17, 2022. Three students received a DARE bookbag filled with goodies for winning the essay contest! Congratulations to the three of you! (Pictured below) Thank you also to the school faculty, as well as Tiffany's bakery for donating delicious sugar cookies with black & red sprinkles for all the 8th-grade students and faculty.  Another shout-out to Mike and John Plevris who own Plevris Auto Service and Copley Auto & Collision for their continued support and sponsorship of our DARE program. Have a great holiday season everyone!
