Willingboro Township Police Department participates in Law Enforcement Against Drugs (L.E.A.D), an evidence based program that works with law enforcement and educators to create safer, healthier communities free of drugs, bullying, and violence. We have four police officers who are certified L.E.A.D instructors. These officers instruct the L.E.A.D program to 5th and 8th grade students enrolled in Willingboro School District.
The L.E.A.D curriculum consists of ten scripted 45 minute lessons that sets the framework for drug and alcohol prevention. Each lesson encourages student participation through the use of role play and in class games. Lessons one though five focuses on skill development and character education. Throughout lessons one though five students will learn how to set and reach personal goals, make responsible decisions, identify and manage emotions and communicate effectively. In lessons six through ten students are educated about the dangers of drugs and apply the skills learned in the first five lessons to confidently resist negative peer pressure.
