In addition to their regular duties, we have employees who have been trained in specialized services to enable the department to achieve its mission.
Officer Christopher D. Flynn is the department current D.A.R.E. Officer. He has served in the position since 2002. Officer Flynn instructs at all three elementary schools for the public school system of Massena Central and the Trinity Catholic School. Officer Patrick J. Serguson served as the department’s DARE officer from 1994 to 2007.
D.A.R.E. is a cooperative program between the schools, police and students to help students make better decisions and to keep kids off drugs. DARE is an interactive class where students are engaged in problem solving, in depth discussions and role playing.
The goal of the DARE program is to significantly reduce/eliminate the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and the use of violent behavior by our kids.
Students will understand the physical, social and legal risks and effects of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and inhalants on their developing brains and bodies. Students will compare and contrast the normative beliefs of peers in their classroom with the national data about teen use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
Students will expand their knowledge about a variety of positive things to do in the school and in the community that does not involve the use of drugs. Students will develop tools and strategies to use in real life situations when faced with the pressures in today’s society.

As part of our commitment to keep your teenagers safe, the Massena Police Department will conduct drive-by home checks while parents are out of town. All you need to do is complete a “Teen Safety Home Check” form. You can download one HERE, or the form is available at the police station.
Once a completed form is received, you will be provided with a flyer that you can post in your home letting your teenager known that the police will be checking the home.
The parents would leave a phone number they can be reached at. The police would contact the parents if they drove by and noticed suspicious activity. The parents would then either decide to handle the situation when they got home or ask the officer to intervene.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CALL: 769-3577
NOTE: Because it is always difficult to predict the amount of work this agency might experience at any given time, we can not guarantee this service. We will do our very best to provide it based upon available manpower.
