Sheriff Anderson would like to invite Bates County children and their families to attend the D.A.R.E. Family Fun Day at the Bates County Sheriff's Office on June 13th. Sheriff Anderson and his Administrative Staff organized this event so kids can interact with Sheriff's Deputies.
With everything that has been going on lately in the media, Sheriff
Anderson does not want our youth to be scared of Law Enforcement. If
kids are scared, hurt or needs help in any way he wants them to know
they can run to Law Enforcement, not run away from them.
Anderson wants kids to know that Law Enforcement Officers are their
friends and are here to help them if the need arises.
The event will be held June 13th from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the west
parking lot at the Bates County Sheriff’s Office. There will be bounce
houses kids can play in. They will have a chance to Dunk-A-Deputy in the
dunk tank or win a prize at one of the carnival games. Deputies will
be cooking hot dogs, popcorn and snow-cones to give away. Kids will be
able to look at police vehicles and see our K-9’s at work. Bring your
camera so you can take your child’s picture with DAREN the Lion. The
first 100 kids will get a free D.A.R.E. t-shirt.
We hope you mark your calendars and plan on attending this FREE event with your family.
