The Alleghany County / Covington Sheriff’s Office is proud to partner with the Alleghany Highlands Public School System to offer the Drug Abuse Resistance Education Program (D.A.R.E.) to the 5th and 8th grade students. The D.A.R.E. program is designed to teach the students the dangers of drug, alcohol, and tobacco use. This is accomplished by teaching the students how to use the decision-making model to make good decisions.
The Alleghany County / Covington Sheriff’s Office has two staff members that are certified D.A.R.E. instructors, Colonel Chris Fisher and Cpl. Ricky Bates.
