The D.A.R.E Program educates young students about the dangers of drugs, alcohol and poor choices. Each winter and spring the student's work is culminated in a graduation ceremony held at each of the elementary schools. These programs are a collaborative effort by law enforcement officers, educators, students, parents and the community to offer law related educational programs in the schools in an effort to reduce crime, drug abuse, violence and encourage a safer school environment. Each and everyday we strive to equip our youth with the tools necessary for them to grow into safe and successful adults.

School Resource Officers
The United States Department of Justice defines "school resource officer" as a "sworn law enforcement officer responsible for safety and crime prevention in schools," we define them as heroes in our own community. In light of recent developments around the country, MPD and City Government has taken the proactive step of putting a SRO in each public school in our district to ensure the safety of our kids, and with that, the longevity and security of our future.
Safe Exchange Zone
MPD has created a "Safe Exchange Zone" to provide an exchange location for Internet purchase exchanges, as well as, child custody exchanges. The two spaces are just outside the main entrance to the Police Department and under 24-hour video surveillance. There are no time restrictions when transactions are to occur, but we advise for exchanges to take place during daylight hours. You do not need to make an appointment to make transactions.
