D.A.R.E. (Drug Awareness Resistance Program)

D.A.R.E., a nationally-established Drug Awareness Resistance Program (www.DARE.org), is taught by a specially trained and certified police officer to K-5 students in partnership with elementary and middle schools in Key Biscayne.

Officer Martin Santiago fills this role for the Key Biscayne Police Department. H can be reached at msantiago@kbpd.net.

Overwhelming national and international demand led to the creation of D.A.R.E. America, a national non-profit organization that serves as a resource to communities, helping to establish and improve local D.A.R.E. programs. D.A.R.E. America provides officer training, supports the development and evaluation of the D.A.R.E. curriculum, provides student educational materials, monitors instruction standards and program results, and creates national awareness for D.A.R.E.
