DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is a nationally recognized program that teaches children the skills needed to recognize and resist the pressures that cause them to experiment with drugs or become involved in violent activities.

In 2011, the Sheriff’s Office provided the DARE program to approximately 600 fifth grade students in sixteen elementary schools located throughout Washington County. The Sheriff’s Office currently uses five certified DARE instructors.
