D.A.R.E. is a program sponsored by the Washington County Sheriff's Office. Our trained officers visit and teach in several schools within the county. Take a look at what they do and how many children they reach.
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.
