Kewaunee County is being recognized by the Wisconsin Alliance for Drug Endangered Children (DEC) for developing a DEC program that helps children who have been exposed to illegal drugs and/or may be at risk for abuse and neglect.
The Wisconsin Alliance for Drug Endangered Children defines a DEC program as an organized effort that responds to the immediate needs of drug endangered children, while working to convict those who have put them at risk. The group involved in the effort typically includes, law enforcement, prosecutors, probation and parole, human services, health departments, schools, treatment centers and community members.
Kewaunee County has numerous community partners involved in developing its DEC program says Kewaunee County Department of Human Services Director Robert Mattice, “Kudos to my staff at Kewaunee County Department of Human Services, Kewaunee County Department of Public Health, Kewaunee County Corporation Counsel, probation and parole, law enforcement and school districts in Kewaunee County for working together to make this happen.”
