New Jersey State Police Detective Jason Dare violated the terms of a previously negotiated plea agreement for misconduct by going AWOL when he left a medical facility last year, records show. A New Jersey State trooper, who disappeared from a Delaware County medical center last year prompting a multiday search, was fired after an investigation into his tattoos that were linked to white supremacist ideology, records show. Detective Jason Dare was terminated from the New Jersey State Police in November aftermore than 19 years on the force, according to the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office of Public Integrity and Accountability. When Dare went missing from the medical rehabilitation center in March 2023, authorities did not release details about why he was in a Pennsylvania facility. He went missing near the Penn State Brandywine campus, and was found five days later in the Middletown Township area. When authorities released photos of Dare in a public call to help with the search, some questioned tattoos seen on his body, saying they might have ties to white supremacist beliefs. One of the photos showed a tattoo on Dare’s lower neck that read “Blood Honor.” The slogan “Blood & Honour” was used by the Hitler Youth, and is associated with a number of white supremacist groups, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. The Attorney General’s office of Public Integrity and Accountability confirmed Dare had “inappropriate social media posts and conflicts of interest related to visible tattoos associated with groups espousing racist ideology,” a spokesperson for the Attorney General’s office said in a statement.
