Joe Muniz Was Racine County first DARE Officer. He had dedicated his life to helping Kids make good decisions. He was well known and respected in all of Racine County. In 1993 Joe was elected to the board of directors of the Wisconsin DARE Officers Association. He brought a passion to the Board. He wanted to make the WDOA the best association of its kind. He wanted the Wisconsin DARE Officers to receive the best training possible. Unfortunately Joe passed away in 1996 during his term as President of the WDOA. The WDOA board thought it only fitting that the DARE Officer of the Year Award be named in his honor. Each year an Officer who exemplifies the qualities and passion that Joe lived is honored with this award.
