The Shreveport Police Department's D.A.R.E. vehicle won first place in the "SUV" division at the D.A.R.E. Car Show.

The vehicle was honored last week during the annual Louisiana D.A.R.E Officers Association Training Conference held in Pineville, LA.

Shreveport's D.A.R.E. SUV was selected from among a series of other competing vehicles in the SUV class throughout the state.  A total of 18 D.A.R.E. vehicles in four different divisions competed in the contest.

The award winning SUV is a 2013 Ford Explorer, beautifully outfitted with a vehicle body wrap design which displays the colors of our proud nation and bears the departmental seal on its hood.
