Drugs and Organized Crime Awareness Service (DOCAS)
The Drugs and Organised Crime Awareness Service (DOCAS) contributes to the health and safety of every community in British Columbia through prevention. It works with local RCMP detachments and their communities:
- to develop a comprehensive Community Prevention Education Continuum (CPEC) for youth;
- to develop youth initiatives that help prevent issues relating to National security, serious and organised crime, and drugs.
- in delivering the D.A.R.E. Keepin it Real (KiR) program.
Community Prevention Education Continuum (CPEC)
C.P.E.C. is designed to mobilize a community to address and prevent community youth issues. It adopts the old adage of
It takes a whole community to raise a child and puts it into practice.
Keepin it REAL D.A.R.E.
Keepin it REAL D.A.R.E. is a life skills curriculum that is taught by specially trained uniformed police officers to grade 5 or grade 6 students in British Columbia. It provides students with the skills to make safe and responsible decisions and to be good citizens by helping others. The curriculum includes lessons on communication skills, resistance skills, decision making skills, how to handle stress, and bullying.
