DARE Officer Training ( DOT )

On September 23rd  DARE Iowa graduated 18 new DARE Officers from the 34th DARE Iowa DOT.  This years entire class had an exceptional first week meeting all the standards and objectives to continue on to week #2. The training team has commented on how hard working they have been and their attitude has made it an easy class to train. Most important is the fact that "ALL" in attendance seem to be here for the right reason...."The KIDS".  Week #2 went just as well and all Officers after completing their lesson presentations meeting the objectives once again, they were then allowed to visit the school in Norwalk. This was an excellent school to work with, Principal, office staff and especially the teachers were extremely helpful. They took time to critique the presentations and offered constructive comments that will be put to good use when they return home. Thanks to all the staff at the Lakewood Elementary School in Norwalk, Iowa. You really ROCK!

Congratulations to all the new DARE OFFICERS
