    D.A.R.E., which stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education, is a national program
that was first brought to Cranston in 1988. Cranston’s first D.A.R.E. officer was Tom
Fazio, but as the program expanded, three more officers were added. The officers travel
to different schools in the city to educate the students about drug abuse. The program
encompasses all grade levels.
The officers who work this unit have to be able to relate well with young people. While
working, they wear a different uniform than regular patrol officers. Their shirts are white
to create a less threatening appearance. They also wear special shoulder patches and
badges which designate them as D.A.R.E. instructors.
