Congratulations to the Graduates of the 78th Florida D.A.R.E. Officer Training!
The first training of the year for the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) Program was January 4-15, 2016 and was once again held at the FDLE Fort Myers Regional Operations Center (FMROC). The 16 officers and agencies making the commitment to the program include those in Broward, Collier, Hendry, Polk, Leon and Miami-Dade Counties. The class also included officers from Arizona, Oregon, and Belgium.
Director of the Criminal Justice Professionalism Program Dean Register, was the keynote speaker at the graduation ceremony and presented FDLE Inspector and Florida D.A.R.E. Statewide Coordinator Stephen Emerson with a flag recognizing him for his service. The flag was flown for him at the Capitol January 4, 2016, to honor his work with the D.A.R.E. Program and to acknowledge his retirement March 1, 2016.
