Valdosta - Police officers from across the state are learning to help kids resist drugs and alcohol.

The Lowndes County Sheriff's Office is hosing the state DARE training conference this week. More than 100 officers from all over Georgia are taking part.

They'll learn about important issues like juvenile behavior, the latest narcotics news, and ways to keep kids on the right path. "Children are our future and we're there to help point them in the direction to avoid drugs and violence and make good choices," said Sgt. Jim Griffin.

"I hope they leave this conference re-energized and ready to get back into the classrooms this coming school year," said Georgia DARE President Darlene Roberts.

The DARE convention ends on Friday.
