“The L.E.A.D. program, Law Enforcement Against Drugs, is one that is committed to protecting our youth and communities from the proliferation of drugs, drug related crimes, peer to peer/cyber bullying and violence. The organization is supported by dedicated police officers in collaboration with educators, community leaders, families and L.E.A.D. support organizations.”
“The L.E.A.D. program, which promotes saying no to drugs and alcohol abuse, is taught to elementary and middle school students in Secaucus. It teaches the students how to be safe and secure from the dangers that drugs and alcohol pose in their future along with strengthening their social skills in pro-active activities and leadership. Secaucus Police Capt. Carlos Goyenchea serves as the program facilitator, while Secaucus Police Officer William Eccles is the instructor for the L.E.A.D. program.
After the Ceremonies the eighth graders celebrated their graduation at the Secaucus pool. The grownups stepped up with keeping the graduates supplied in hot dogs, hamburgers, and pizza. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, the weather was perfect.
