The Dare and School Resource Officers are in our county schools on a daily basis. The D.A.R.E. officers teach Drug Abuse Resistance Education classes to elementary, middle and high school students in our fifteen county schools. The School Resource Officer program is a cooperative effort between education, law enforcement and the community. The program promotes positive and effective communication between youth, teachers and law enforcement. Most of our School Resource Officers are cross-trained to teach in the D.A.R.E. program. The primary goal of the School Resource Officer is to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and other school personnel.
