A school visit from a police officer led Chris Neuville to a law enforcement career. When the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program was first established, Neuville, who serves as a Door County Sheriff’s Department Juvenile Investigator, became part of it. 15-years later, Neuville has now been elected President of the Wisconsin D.A.R.E. Officers Association. He says he’s honored to head the state-wide organization of a program that he knows is very effective. Neuville saw that when a woman reported to him about being sexually abused.
Neuville says his new role as President of the Wisconsin D.A.R.E. Officers Association won’t get in his way of visiting local schools. And he reminds people that the key to ensuring D.A.R.E.’s continued success is through donations that pay for its operations.
