Community Action Team

About

The Community Action Team works to change the culture, or environment, that encourages or promotes underage alcohol use and high-risk behaviors. Working collaboratively with law enforcement, city/county government, school administrators and other key stakeholders, this diverse team supports enforcement of existing policies, ordinances or laws that can effectively change high-risk behaviors, and also advocate for new policies, ordinances or laws to be adopted when needed.

Over the last few years, the Community Action Team has been involved in programs such as age-restriction compliance checks, party patrols, and media advocacy. They were also instrumental in the establishment of a public intoxication ordinance in Menomonie in 2011.
