was implemented 1997 in the Dear Creek Schools in northwest Oklahoma County and has
expanded to include Crooked Oak Schools. Deputy Gary Isch instructs more than 300 students
in 4 schools. This program is provided to schools, church and civic groups and businesses
to educate citizens on the dangers and effects of drugs. In 1998, programs were conducted
for more than 12,000 young adults. In 1998, a new 1999 Volkswagen Beetle was purchased
from drug seizure funds to enhance efforts to reach our children. Printed on the vehicle
is our slogan Bugs-N-Hugs Not Drugs
which has been very effective with all age groups. The Beetle gets their attention so that
we can deliver our message of drug awareness. Our D.A.R.E.
program is funded by grant funds.
