Tested Proven Effective

The only k-12 proven-evidence based curricula taught in the united states by police officers.

The LEAD the Way Initiative was formed in order to raise awareness and much needed funds to address the drug and opioid crisis we face today.  Our children have the right to a life free of substance abuse, despair, and violence.  In the Tri-State area we have lost over 10,000 of our friends, family members, and neighbors to drug overdoses in 2016.  In New Jersey, the CDC reports, drug overdose deaths are up 42.3%.

Our Children deserve a proven effective education/ prevention curriculum that provides them with the critical information and skills they need to live healthy lives free of substance abuse and violence.

Our L.E.A.D. instructors provide the only tested and proven effective, evidence based, K-12 anti-drug/anti-violence curriculum delivered by law enforcement.  L.E.A.D. directly addresses opioids in its curriculum and we are currently in 340 communities here in New Jersey.  Our L.E.A.D. officers are the last line of defense in our schools.

If you are on this page, you may have already met one of our L.E.A.D. Program Awareness representatives in your community They are there to raise awareness and help us raise funds to address a drug and opioid epidemic that requires our collective immediate response.

Your support is appreciated and will assist L.E.A.D. and local communities like yours, in three ways

  • Your donation will assist and subsidize L.E.A.D. agencies with obtaining student workbooks.
  • Your donation will subsidize training cost for new L.E.A.D. trainings, update trainings, and training conferences.
  • Your donation will provide donated toys and other items directly to L.E.A.D. agencies and communities right here in New Jersey.

If you do not have L.E.A.D. in your community please call our office at (609) 259-2500.  We would be eager to contact your local police department to provide them further information.

We are providing available supporter static stickers that can be placed on and off easily. Our Development Specialist will be selling them throughout the state of New Jersey for $5.00 and allocate $1.00 of every sticker sale sold, to that local community. We will ensure that a portion of the proceeds gets allocated for local L.E.A.D. activities.

If a local L.E.A.D. Chapter wants to use it for a local fundraiser, we ask that the sticker also be sold for $5.00.

However, the sticker will also be on sale for $5.00 through our Merchandise Company for you to distribute to supporters in your community.

We have two vendors which we utilize for our recycling program. Any Officer who assists in securing a location for the placement of a clothing recycling container will receive a special credit to their allocated account.
