The Highland County Sheriff's Office is proud to partner with the five area Highland County school districts to provide the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) Program.  Deputy Bobby Stroop works in the schools to provide education and awareness programs concerning drugs, alcohol, violence, bullying, internet safety, and other related programs.  The D.A.R.E. program has also hit the streets, holding community street dances, events for school aged children, and in 2008, the first annual D.A.R.E. Fest, a weekend full of events for children and their families.  

The Highland County D.A.R.E. and related safety programs are funded through donations from the community, both business and private. The donations are used for the students in literature, handouts, give-aways, prizes and special events (parties, assemblies, etc.), which reinforce the safety programs. Funds are also raised from fundraisers at the county fair and local festivals and events.

Safety and drug education presentations are also made available to private groups such as scouts, youth groups, churches and senior citizens.

Deputy Bobby Stroop is the D.A.R.E. and Safety Officer for the county schools.  None of the donations collected or funds raised are used to pay the officer's salary. The officer is paid through mandatory fines collected from drug offenders and a special D.A.R.E. grant.

For more information on any of the programs offered by the Highland County Sheriff's Office, to schedule someone to speak to your organization, or to make a donation, please call the office at (937) 393-1421, or email  Deputy Stroop.
