After years spent seeing firsthand how drugs, alcohol and violence destroyed people’s lives, their families’ lives and their communities, Officer Green sought to focus on substance abuse prevention because, he says, arresting the same people each week wasn’t making the difference in what he wanted to accomplish as a police officer. When the opportunity arose to return to his home state and serve as a D.A.R.E. officer in Draper, he “jumped at it.”
“It is something I am passionate about,” he says of DARE. “It is a program that is vital to the community and to our youth.”
