Lacoste Elementary's D.A.R.E. graduation

The Sheriff’s Office honored more than 120 fifth-graders at Lacoste Elementary school earlier this month, who completed a 12-week program in Drug Abuse Resistance Education, or D.A.R.E., taught by instructors from the Sheriff’s Office. It was the last D.A.R.E. graduation of the school year. More than 600 fifth grade students in eight St. Bernard schools graduated from the program given by St. Bernard sheriff’s officers Lt. Lisa Jackson, commander of D.A.R.E., and Sgt. Darrin Miller. The program, held in both public and private schools, was re-established in 2009, four years after Hurricane Katrina.
