FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- With the first month of the new school year nearly complete, Fair Lawn police are raising funds for their annual Law Enforcement Against Drugs (L.E.A.D.) program for local 6th graders.

Formerly known as D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), the program "was developed to bring law enforcement drug & violence prevention services to a new level...to serve law enforcement agencies and children to give them a safe and drug free community," Police Chief Glen Cauwels said.

It's operated by the same officers who handled D.A.R.E. and involves the same lessons, he said.

Although the program is provided free, police need to raise funds for certain costs before lessons begin in November.

One way is through a special program offered on Mondays in October at Anthony's Coal-Fired Pizza on northbound Route 208 (in The Promenade).

Twenty percent of sales for dine-in or takeout service will go to support L.E.A.D. if you tell your server.

A New Jersey Devils Night to raise money for L.E.A.D. was being planned for December.
