DARE Graduations



The DeSoto Parish Sheriff's Office recently participated in D.A.R.E. graduations at many local schools to honor students of the program.  D.A.R.E stands for "Drug Abuse Resistance Education" and is known for its focus on the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse at an early age.  The D.A.R.E. program also helps students in making wise decisions through positive life skills.  In the past week, Sheriff Jayson Richardson, Lt. Dean Register, and Sgt. Natasha Jones were honored to spend time with elementary students from Logansport, North DeSoto, and Central schools.   Many students were recognized for their eager participation in the classroom, excellent behavior, and for writing their very own D.A.R.E. essay.  Also recognized was D.A.R.E. Student Leader of the Year, Luke Delafield, from North DeSoto Upper Elementary.  Luke was chosen for his willingness to help other students and was awarded for his outstanding leadership skills.  Following the presentation of certificates, at each event students enjoyed snacks, cake, and refreshments provided by the DeSoto Parish Sheriff's Office.  Sheriff Jayson Richardson would like to thank Principals Mary Register at Logansport, Brandon Burback at North DeSoto Upper, and Lee Hollowell at Central for allowing our deputies the privilege to teach and mentor area students throughout the years.
