Edgewater Police Department provides a Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E) and School Resource Officer (SRO) to our local Edgewater and New Smyrna schools. Officer Randy Mumpower alternates his time between Edgewater Elementary and Indian River Elementary Schools as well as assisting at New Smyrna Middle, Chisholm Elementary and New Smyrna Beach High Schools. Officer Mumpower is very dedicated to educating our youth on how to stay away from drugs and deter violence.
Officer Mumpower not only instructs the D.A.R.E Program but also teaches Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T). Officer (SRO) Mumpower has become more than just a familiar face with local youth; they can also rely on him as a counselor, mentor and a coach when and where needed.
