Sheriff DARES to reconsider drug program

Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton wasn’t a fan of the DARE program in 2014.

“You can talk about DARE all day long,” Stockton said during a forum hosted by the Roane County Republican Women.

“There is no proven statistics that DARE works.”

Stockton’s opinion of DARE has changed over the years. So much so that his office is implementing it back into the Roane County School System.

“I talked to the coordinator of the DARE education training program,” Stockton said recently.
