D.A.R.E.

The Green County Sheriff’s Department conducts the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program to Fifth Grade Students at the Monticello Elementary School. This program teaches kids to resist drugs and violence and is conducted by a Green County Sheriff Deputy. The D.A.R.E. program has been proven to be effective tool in combating the growing drug and violence problem in our communities.

“Shop With A Cop” Program

The Green County Law Enforcement Administrators’ Association (GCLEAA) has sponsored the “Shop With A Cop” program since 2002. This program is designed to provide kids an opportunity to “Shop With A Cop” to provide their family with Christmas presents, they wouldn’t have been able to receive without the program. The Police Chiefs, Sheriff and other Law Enforcement Administrators of Green County, working with their Officers, the local School Districts, Wal-Mart and other organizations, bring a brighter Christmas to kids each year.

If you would like to make a donation to this worthy cause, you may send a donation made out to “Shop With A Cop” in care of the Monticello Police Department. Contact Chief Erb with any questions regarding this program.
