D.A.R.E. officer works to develop lasting relationships in Villa Park
VILLA PARK – It’s 9:30 a.m. on a Friday morning and Mr. Hugelier’s fifth-graders are settling in for their weekly D.A.R.E. class.
At the front of the classroom is their teacher, Officer Kevin Conner of the Villa Park Police Department. He’s opened up the “D.A.R.E. Box,” a decorated shoe box the students use to anonymously ask questions or make comments for Conner, and is sifting through scraps of spiral notebook paper.
“Can different types of drugs be combined?” one student asked. Another has asked about the different types of drugs, while a third wonders if Conner has ever needed to use his weapon as a police officer.
