Each year, Christian County Sheriff’s Office takes D.A.R.E. on the road to area schools. After several exciting lessons with Deputy Whitaker, students are treated with a D.A.R.E. graduation and pizza party! Deputy Whitaker is continuously amazed and incredibly proud that so many students have taken the initiative to make their communities a better and safer place. Below are just a few pictures of the fun moments had.
