Deputy Stephen Dyer
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office would like to introduce its new D.A.R.E. Officer to the Lincoln County Public School system and the community.
Deputy Stephen Dyer recently completed a two week D.A.R.E. School in Jefferson City, Missouri where he finished number one in his class. A class comprised of 40 Law Enforcement Officers from across the State of Missouri.
Deputy Dyer is a five year veteran in the Law Enforcement field. He began his career in 2006 as a patrol officer for the Wentzville Police Department. He was hired by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office in May of this year.
Deputy Dyer immediately expressed his interest and passion for teaching and his desire to become a D.A.R.E. Officer.
Sheriff Mike Krigbaum believes strongly in the D.A.R.E. program. Even though the Sheriff’s Office’s budget has been cut 1.6 million dollars in the past two years and several positions have been either eliminated or not filled, Sheriff Krigbaum has been adamant about keeping the D.A.R.E. program.
Sheriff Krigbaum feels the D.A.R.E. program is detriment to the youth of this county now more than ever. Just last week, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Enforcement Team made 35 drug arrests in Lincoln County for Heroin related offenses. Sheriff Krigbaum is committed to combating drugs in Lincoln County. He feels it starts with educating the children. Sheriff Krigbaum is proud of his new D.A.R.E. Officer.
Deputy Dyer will teach the D.A.R.E. program to all public school in Lincoln County and two private schools.
Congratulations to Deputy Stephen Dyer for finishing #1 in his class and being committed to the youth in Lincoln County.
