Former Ohio D.A.R.E. Officer Arrested on Federal Child Pornography Charges

Former longtime Beavercreek Police Department Officer Kevin A. Kovacs has been arrested on charges of producing, distributing, receiving, transporting, and possessing child pornography. Kovacs was arrested Thursday morning April 16 in Beavercreek, Ohio. Kovac is also charged with tampering with a witness or informant.

Kovacs was a patrol officer, crime prevention specialist, and a D.A.R.E. officer with the Beavercreek City School District.

The alleged criminal activity occurred between March of 2015 and December of 2019, The United States Department of Justice says.

Beavercreek City Schools released a statement regarding the incident, saying:

Beavercreek City Schools administration was alarmed after learning of the allegations against Ofc. Kovacs. Ofc. Kovacs worked as a D.A.R.E. officer in the district since 2012 and left this role at the conclusion of the 2017-2018 school year upon his retirement from the PD.
School staff and parents have been notified about this alleged incident and are encouraged to reach out to local law enforcement if they have specific concerns or information related to this case.

Kovacs was hired by the Beavercreek Police Department in September of 1992 and retired from the department in August 2018.

Beavercreek Police Chief Dennis Evers released this statement:

“The conduct he is alleged to have committed is both disgusting and extremely disappointing. As a former D.A.R.E. officer who received departmental and community awards for his work, he, of all people, knew this criminal activity to be exploitation of children and unlawful.”

Direct information on the details surrounding Kovacs’ arrest is not available yet.

However, Kovac is specifically facing:

  • Three counts of production of child pornography
  • One count of distribution of child pornography
  • One count of receipt of child pornography
  • Three counts of transportation of child pornography
  • One count of possession of child pornography and
  • Tampering with a witness or informant.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
