Please join us for the 2017 Family Fun & Awards Day to recognize you and your fellow DARE Officers for your years of service to your community. DARE Ohio is taking this opportunity to honor DARE Officers who are actively instructing the DARE curriculum.  Longevity Awards will be based on years of actively instructing the

DARE curriculum in the classroom.  Awards will be given for 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years. You must be registered to attend and be present at the Kings Island event to receive an award.

Also being presented are the DARE Officer of the Year, The Sheriff James Karnes Law Enforcement Executive, Educator of the Year awards, and the DARE Ohio Scholarship Award.  

This event is for ALL Active DARE Officers and their families, not just those receiving an award.

Kings Island has a no gun policy on property which includes off duty officers. Security screenings will likely be present at the front gate and should be anticipated. If an officer brings his/her gun to the front gate then he/she may use a gun locker to secure it but they only have a few lockers. Officers are asked to not bring their weapons.
