Grant to Help Stop Underage Drinking


A $12,000 grant will go to Deschutes County Children and Families Commission to help fund and improve Redmond’s "TAPS" or “Think Again Parents" campaign to stop underage drinking.  CFC spokesperson Julie Spackman says the Redmond program fits the structure of the grant.  "We’re looking at other strategic opportunities for increasing enforcement and patrols for underage parties. But we're also working on increasing awareness of the crime stoppers tip line for use on reporting suspected underage drinking or other drug use. And so, we'll have a media campaign that will move along with enforcement." Spackman says the grant for enforcing underage drinking laws is very important, as studies show that alcohol consumption by teens is not only illegal, it brings on health issues later in life.
