WABAUNSEE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
COMMUNITY SERVICE AND D.A.R.E.
The Wabaunsee County Sheriff's Office is concerned with its citizens' personal safety and the safety of their property. In this regard, a number of crime prevention programs have been developed to reduce the potential for crimes against county residents.
The agency's D.A.R.E. Unit is staffed by one deputy who is responsible for the creation and administration of crime prevention programs offered to the public. Deputies from the division are available to make public presentations for organizations and community groups throughout the county on a variety of topics. Programs include home security, community awareness, scams against the elderly, and child safety.
The Sheriff's Office also offers the D.A.R.E. Curriculum to 6th grade students in 7 county schools. The 10 lessons presented equip the students with tools necessary to help them resist peer pressures to experiment with drugs, especially tobacco, alcohol and marijuana. Students graduate from the 10-week course with a certificate, a D.A.R.E. shirt and other mementos of their participation.
