Local officials aim to crack down on underage drinking

Local News

Local law enforcement officers are warning communities about hefty fines for underage drinkers.

It is about the time of the year when kids get excited for prom and parents of high school seniors begin to plan graduation parties. Tuesday morning local schools, law enforcement, and Brown County Health and Human Services came together to announce their support for “Parents Who Host, Lose the Most” campaign.

The campaign aims to fight underage drinking, especially at a time where statistics show it to be quite prevalent. Officials are also reminding parents that social hosting is now illegal in Wisconsin. They say the first violation is a $500 fine.
