September 2008 saw the debut of the Lancaster Police Department DARE Program show car.  The 2008 Dodge Hemi Charger received a custom paint job by Kumler Collision of Lancaster, Ohio, as well as custom wheels from Huddle's Tire and Auto Inc. of Lancaster.  Additional support came Milby's Muffler Service, Vinyl Detail LLC, and D&M Distributors.  This project was coordinated by Officer Chris Caton # 236 (pictured on the left) and was funded by donations and money seized from illegal drug dealers.
