Gurnee police will host an award ceremony at 11 a.m. Saturday to recognize DARE students for outstanding performance. The Gurnee Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association, in partnership with Woodland Elementary District 50 and Gurnee Elementary District 56, have awarded 39 students of the year with brick pavers bearing their names. The bricks have been installed at the Guardian statue in front of Gurnee police headquarters. Winners were chosen based on their high quality of participation in the Drug Awareness Resistance Education program during the 2012-13 school year. Students, their families and friends and the general public are invited to the award ceremony at the police station at 100 N. O'Plaine Road. Mayor Kristina Kovarik and Police Chief Kevin Woodside will present the awards.
