YORK – York County Sheriff Dale Radcliff was recognized this past week for his unending support for the D.A.R.E. program in York County, marking 25 years of commitment.

D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education, which is an educational program that seeks to prevent use of controlled drugs, membership in gangs and violent behavior.

During the recent D.A.R.E. graduation ceremony at York Middle School, York County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Gillespie (who is also the county’s D.A.R.E. instructor) presented Sheriff Radcliff with a plaque and thanked him for his support for the program.

Sheriff Radcliff was instrumental in starting the D.A.R.E. program in York County a quarter of a century ago.

With 100 middle school students graduating from the D.A.R.E. program, there were hundreds in attendance – as well as the majority of sheriff’s deputies who were there to support their soon-to-be-retired leader.
