Drug Endangered Children program meets in Wisconsin Rapids
WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) -
Law enforcement and child protective service agencies from across the state gathered in Wisconsin Rapids Wednesday.
It was part of the Wisconsin Drug Endangered Children program. It helps identify and protect children who may be in homes where drugs are being used.
One common theme—all local agencies must work together to achieve one common goal.
"This is an opportunity for governmental agencies to work together to make sure that when we have children who are falling prey and being victimized by virtue of drug dealing and they need services that we get them the services that they need," J.B. Van Hollen, WI Attorney General.
The two-day event runs through tomorrow. Event leaders say if everyone learns just one new thing to take back with them, that's a success.
