The Sheriff’s Office offers the DARE curriculum to sixth-grade students in 10 Shawnee County elementary schools.
The DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program is a substance use prevention education program designed to equip elementary school children with skills necessary to help them make healthy choices and to resist peer pressure to experiment with tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. This unique program uses uniformed law enforcement officers to teach a formal curriculum to students in a classroom setting.
The DARE program has one full-time and two part-time instructors. The DARE program is taught to over 600 sixth-grade students every year and is offered in the Seaman, Shawnee Heights and Kaw Valley School Districts.
For more information regarding the DARE program please contact one of the DARE Instructors:
