Information Sharing/Agency Updates
Roxanne advised Kayla was able to update the sticker shock hanger and sticker. She passed them around for all to view. So far three liquor stores have committed to participating (Lake Liquors, P&A, and Uptown Off-Sale) and it sounds like there may be at least four more considering this opportunity (Northbound and Westbound Liquor, Briggs Lake Liquor, and Sand Dunes Spirits). The goal is to do the campaign in April.
Roxanne advised the progress report for the DFC grant is due by March 31st. The continuation application for year 3 was submitted at the end of January. The United Way progress report was also submitted.
Jayme Swenson advised the Free Heroin’s Hold support group meetings have been going very well. Parents and supporters have been attending, and recovered youth have been helping. Eric Balabon advised he was approached by a friend of Dylan’s asking if he would be able to speak at the high schools. Jayme will work with Jennifer Nordeen about trying to set something up.
Roxanne advised there was a speaker at the MN Crime Prevention Board meeting who is looking to do a statewide “hidden in plain sight” effort. They are hoping to put together a trailer with a room set up to be used in different communities along with other materials if the trailer is unavailable. She will provide more information as it is learned.
The regular meeting was adjourned at 9:12 a.m. Darin Teske then provided a presentation on Minnesota’s Medical Cannabis program.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday, March 16, at 9:00 a.m. in the Sheriff’s Office Emergency Operations Center.
