Youth Programs

During the 1990-1991 school year, the Brown County Sheriff's Office implemented a D.A.R.E. pilot program with the Wrightstown School District. Initially, one officer instructed the D.A.R.E. curriculum to 50 students on a part-time basis. Today, the D.A.R.E. Program has expanded to four full-time certified trained D.A.R.E. officers teaching the curriculum in 57 public and parochial schools throughout Brown County. The D.A.R.E. Program is a 16-week program that teaches:

  • Understanding the effects of mind-altering drugs – students learn the harmful effects of drug and alcohol use

  • Considering consequences – alcohol and marijuana use and the consequences that go along with it

  • Changing beliefs about drug use – students learn ways to resist peer pressure

  • Learning resistance techniques / ways to say “no” – students learn many ways of refusing drugs by learning ways to say no

  • Building self-esteem – students learn about their own positive qualities and how to compliment others

  • Learning assertiveness / a response style – students learn to assert their rights confidently without interfering with the rights of others

  • Managing stress without taking drugs – students learn techniques to avoid or relieve stress – they learn that using drugs to relieve stress causes new problems

  • Reducing violence – students learn about violence in their community and how to choose and make good friendships

  • Combating media influence on drug use and violence – D.A.R.E. review techniques used in the media to encourage tobacco and alcohol use

  • Making decision about risky behaviors – students learn to recognize the choices they have and how to make decisions that promote good self-interest

  • Saying yes to positive alternatives – students can be accepted by peers and have fun without using drugs

  • Resisting gang and group violence – students discuss the kinds of pressures they may encounter from gang members
In addition, the Ashwaubenon Public Safety Department and the Pulaski Police Department instruct the D.A.R.E. Program within their respective jurisdictions.

Brown County D.A.R.E. officers instruct the Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.) Program to a number of middle schools as a follow-up to the D.A.R.E. Program.

The object of exploring is to give the opportunity for young people between the ages of 14 and 21 to learn about a specific occupation. The Brown County Sheriff's Office Explorer Post involves sworn Deputies training and providing instruction about all aspects of the law enforcement field. Training includes such topics as firearms, traffic stops, domestic violence, crash investigation, fingerprinting, crime scene investigation, community policing, first aid and CPR. The training gives Brown County's youth a great opportunity to decide whether a career in law enforcement may be right for them.
The Explorers have also participated in such activities as assisting in Packer game parking, assisting in traffic control at games, fingerprinting young children and assisting sworn deputies at other community events. This is also a great opportunity to earn community service hours (and it doesn't look bad on a resume).
If you have an interest in learning more about this exciting opportunity, call Deputy Jessica Smith at 448-4192.

Liaison Officers
Currently, there are four School Liaison Officer positions within the Brown County Sheriff's Office. Two of these positions serve the Howard-Suamico School District. One of which encompasses Bay Port High School and two grade schools and one encompasses Bayview Middle School and two grade schools. The other two positions serve the Wrightstown and Denmark School Districts. These two officers handle all elementary, middle, and high school matters.

The Liaison Officer position is designed to be a proactive position in law enforcement. It is an important recourse for school staff, law enforcement, and the young people of a community. Many crimes can be solved or stopped because of the relationship that the officer establishes between the school, community, and law enforcement. The Liaison Officer position has been proven to be an extremely effective tool in solving and preventing crime and also to reduce and prevent violence.

Some of the Liaison Officer’s job duties are to:

  • Establish a relationship with students so they feel comfortable coming to an officer with their problems concerning law enforcement or any matter.

  • Assist the school administration in keeping a safe school atmosphere.

  • Enforce state and municipal law in and around the school.

  • Provide teachers, administrators, and other school officials with information concerning the law.

  • Provide classroom presentations for students in areas of mutual concern.

  • Assist any law enforcement agency in investigative matters.

  • Assist the business community concerning juvenile matters.
