Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is a prevention program taught to the city’s fifth-grade students. The Asheboro Police Department and Asheboro City Schools sponsor the 10-week program. MPO Paul Maness visits each of the city’s five public schools and three private schools once a week during the spring to teach the program.
Maness introduces himself to the students during the program’s first week and tells them a little about his job as a police officer. Students learn that the police do more than arrest and write tickets. Police help others. That’s why most officers choose this profession. Maness tells the students that he’s no different than they are – except for the polyester suit and badge. Students learn that they can relate to police officers and see them as more than just a uniform. 

Lessons focus on the dangers of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs, and how students can say “No!” to each of them. Students are taught how companies use advertising to entice young people to try their products. Students learn how to be confident when refusing drugs and are reminded of the many, many drug-free activities in which they can participate in rather than use. Each school has a D.A.R.E. graduation or “culmination” ceremony, during which students hear a guest speaker and awards are presented.

The D.A.R.E. program has been taught in the Asheboro City Schools since 1987. Thousands of children have successfully graduated the program during its nearly 25-year history here. D.A.R.E. was created in 1983 in Los Angeles, Calif., and remains a successful and immensely popular program. D.A.R.E. is taught in more than 75 percent of the school districts in the United States and more than 43 countries around the world.

If you have a question or comment about the D.A.R.E. program, you may contact Officer Maness at the police department, (336) 301-5969.


The department’s court liaison officer optimizes the relationship between the court systems and the police department.  The court liaison officer ensures officers attend court only when they are actually needed and attends or monitors arraignment proceedings in lieu of an officer’s presence. 
Asheboro Police Reserves are sworn police officers who do not receive financial compensation for the time they work. Reserve officers are required to work 12 hours a month and assist with many functions within the police department.

Asheboro Animal Control has been put in place to respond to any animal control issues occurring within the City of Asheboro.  For additional animal control information can be obtained here
