Curriculum And Information
Our local community: Madison County
began the D.A.R.E. program in the summer of 1989, through the
Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the London City Schools,
Madison Plains Local Schools, West Jefferson Local Schools,
Jonathan Alder Schools, St. Patrick Catholic School and Madison
Christian School. Presently the program is commanded by Lt.
Teena Gallagher and assisted by Deputy Roberta Braithwaite. Also D.A.R.E. Middle School is offered in all area schools. We have
taught High School in the past at London High School.
Since the onset, the Sheriff’s
Office has included a second, third and fourth grade mini visit. Our
officers feel this information on safety issues is extremely
important at this level.
Madison County Sheriff's
Crime Prevention Programs
The Madison County crime prevention unit is
also a member of the "Ohio Crime Prevention Association".
Both organizations believe that crime prevention is a pattern of
attitudes and behaviors directed both at reducing the threat of
crime and enhancing the sense of safety and security, which
positively influences the quality of life in society and helps
develop environments where crime cannot flourish. For this to be
possible it means having a working partnership with concerned
citizens to address ways to prevent crime, violence and drug
The Madison County Sheriff's Office offers a
variety of programs geared towards the above philosophy. Please
call and schedule at least one month in advance. You may
schedule any business day at (740) 845-1813 or (740) 845-1808
