BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Monday marked a big occasion for dozens of Baton Rouge area school kids. They can now call themselves graduates of the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program.

"It makes a difference in the life of our children that are brought up today, the society that they're growing up in, and the teachers that we have in our office have taken on the responsibility of teaching DARE full time, every day during the week at all of the elementary schools in Baton Rouge," said Constable Reggie Brown.

DARE involves elementary school students through 5th grade. Many former students have complimented the program, saying the lessons learned really played a role in growing up.
