WAN­GARATTA Po­lice In­spec­tor Ker­rie Hicks has praised the ini­tia­tive of Com­mu­ni­ties That Care Alpine, an or­gan­i­sa­tion which last Wed­nes­day re­leased its com­mu­nity ac­tion plan to re­duce adolescent al­co­hol use in Alpine Shire.

With the launch of an Al­co­hol and Drug Foun­da­tion Lo­cal Drug Ac­tion Team, CTCA will we aim to cut adolescent al­co­hol use across the shire through pro­grams for young peo­ple and their par­ents.

“The Alpine LDAT is an im­pres­sive group of peo­ple with a shared goal to re­duce drug and al­co­hol harm in our com­mu­nity,” In­spec­tor Hicks said.

“It’s a pro­gres­sive and collaborative group of peo­ple with demon­strated suc­cess through other pro­grams, es­pe­cially in re­la­tion to re­duc­ing rates of youth sui­cide.
