As a Lebanon Police Officer, Henry Keene has seen the effects drugs and poor decisions can have on individuals and the community.
As the Lebanon DARE Officer, he tries to teach children how to make good decisions.
“It’s teaching kids to make decisions when nobody’s looking,” Keene said. “When they are under peer pressure, are they able to evaluate and respond and make a good decision?”
Keene, 46, said DARE did not exist when he was growing up, and he thinks about that whenever he arrests someone close to his own age.
