The following is a news release from the city of Pocatello.
POCATELLO — The Pocatello D.A.R.E. program now has a different vehicle to use when visiting schools.
Idaho Central Credit Union has generously donated a former “Green Machine” to be refurbished for the D.A.R.E. program.
“The D.A.R.E. program is grateful to Idaho Central for this charitable contribution,” stated Sgt. Trent Whitney.
Representatives from Idaho Central Credit Union handed over the keys to the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Oct. 20 at the Idaho Central Credit Union Administration office in Chubbuck.
The Pocatello D.A.R.E. officers are working with various sponsors of the program to transform the Jeep. They hope to have the vehicle completed in time to reveal it at “Chrome in the Dome” in the spring of 2018.
The current D.A.R.E. car will still be used by the second D.A.R.E. officer and be available for community events.
