The Sheriff's Office is fortunate to have two DARE instructors. Chief Deputy Jerrod Eisenberg and Deputy Cory Bennett have completed the rigorous two week training and have both provided instruction to 6th grade students at Highland Elementary. Since 1997, LCSO DARE instructors have provided instruction to over 1500 sixth grade students. The DARE program aims to prevent the use of illegal drugs and alcohol by teens and children and also provides prevention strategies for peer pressure, bullying and other juvenile pressures. D.A.R.E. envisions a world in which students everywhere are empowered to respect others and choose to lead lives free from violence, substance use, and other dangerous behaviors.
The Lewis County DARE program is supported by donations of private citizens and numerous local businesses. If you wish to donate to this project please call anytime.
