Young children in our county are exposed to drug use much earlier than you would think. In an attempt to curb that, the Sheriff's Office, in partnership with the Harford County Office of Drug Control Policy, offers a program to educate Elementary School students about the dangers of drugs and strategies to deal with peer pressure.

The second "Pledge Program" is now underway at Havre de Grace Elementary School, and it's time to talk about our next program, which will be held at Red Pump Elementary. See the flier for details.
