Sergeant Tim Cleary


Officer Virgil Willoughby



D.A.R.E. is the most widely accepted drug abuse prevention program in America. D.A.R.E. provides students with the skills necessary to resist negative peer pressure, avoid the temptation to use drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, and how to deal with violence. The D.A.R.E. program is taught by certified D.A.R.E. officers from the Elizabethtown Police Department to students within all schools in the city limits.
