Several hundred St. Bernard Parish fifth graders recently graduated from the fall semester of the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office’s Drug Abuse Resistance Education program.

Graduation ceremonies were held for students at Lacoste Elementary, Arabi Elementary, St. Bernard Christian Academy, Chalmette Elementary, Willie Smith Elementary and Our Lady of Prompt Succor. 

Sheriff James Pohlmann said the D.A.R.E. anti-drug program, taught in St. Bernard Parish schools by program supervisor Capt. Lisa Jackson and Sgt. Darrin Miller, is aimed at discouraging youngsters from using drugs, including tobacco and alcohol, or taking part in violence or bullying of others.

During the graduation ceremonies, students heard from Sheriff Pohlmann and other officers who spoke about making the right choices when it comes to the use of drugs or alcohol. The Sheriff stressed the importance of listening to their parents and teachers and choosing their friends wisely. He also told the students not to bully others, and to report any kind of bullying they witness to a teacher or other adult.
