The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office established the D.A.R.E. Program in the fall of 1994. The D.A.R.E. Program is being taught in the Kasson-Mantorville, Triton and Hayfield School Districts.
The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. instructors are Deputy David Skadson and Deputy Matt Stradtmann. Deputy Skadson and Deputy Stradtmann teach the program at Triton and Hayfield school districts in Dodge County.The D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program is a collaborative effort between the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, the local schools, parents, and community leaders. D.A.R.E. works because it surrounds children with support and encouragement from all sides.
D.A.R.E. teaches kids how to recognize and resist the direct and subtle pressures that influence them to experiment with alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs. And since between 70% and 90% of all crime is drug related, it is absolutely vital that we reach the children at an early age.
