Officer Scott Jones meets with the sixth grade class for thirty-five minutes weekly over twelve weeks teaching the D.A.R.E. program. During these classes, students learn how to resist drugs and violence. The students also learn about the dangers of drugs and the many ways to say no. Abuse of legal drugs such as alcohol, tobacco and prescription medications are discussed as well as why age limits and laws are important. The purpose of these classes is to spur discussion with parents in the home. By having parents reinforce the dangers associated with drug use and why resolving conflicts with violence is a dead end solution, it is our belief that students will model their behavior based on our teachings, life experiences and positive role models.

Essex Fells Police Foundation

Essex Fells Police Foundation

The Essex Fells Police Foundation is a charitable organization, created by concerned residents, which raises funds for the purpose of purchasing equipment and training for the Essex Fells Police Department.

These purchases enable our police officers to obtain equipment and training which the department would not be able to provide under its regular limited budget.
