On October 3, three Westerville elementary schools will host an opportunity for D.A.R.E. officers in training to gain experience in front of kids. Teams of police officers from across the State of Ohio will visit Robert Frost, Huber Ridge, and Hawthorne to conduct mini D.A.R.E. lessons and socialize with students during lunch and recess times. This experience will give the officers in training the needed practice of being in front of kids, learning how to respond to kids’ questions, and how to interact with elementary students. Westerville is proud to host these adult learners.
