Drug Endangered Children Team Making A Difference

Fond du Lac Police Chief Bill Lamb says the Drug Endangered Children Team is making a difference for children endangered by their parents or guardians’ drug activities. The team was put together with two main goals in mind. He says first and foremost they want to get help quicker to children living in drug-endangered environments. He says they also want to hold offenders more accountable who subject children to dangerous environments. He says that could include homes where heroin is being used and dirty syringes are left within the grasp of children or homes where there’s drug-trafficking and there is a threat of violence. He says they’ve had some outstanding arrests through the program over the last two years. Chief Lamb says his officers trained for the program are training other law enforcement agencies in the County expanding the program. The Drug Endangered Children program is a collaborative effort of the Fond du Lac Police Department, Fond du Lac County Department of Social Services, District Attorney’s Office, Fond du Lac School District, Probation and Parole, and County Public Health Department.
