The Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department presents a drug abuse, anti-gang and violence education program at the Cornwall on Hudson Elementary School and St. Thomas of Canterbury School. The primary emphasis of the program is to assist students in recognizing and resisting the pressures that influence them to experiment with drug and/or violence. The program is entitled DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education).

The Los Angeles Unified School District's Instructional Specialist developed the curriculum. It is presented by a uniformed police officer and will cover such topics as how to say no to peers, building self-esteem, and alternatives to drug use. An abbreviated program is also be given to children in grades Kindergarten through Fourth. This abbreviated program deals more with personal safety of your children.
