WINDHAM COUNTY, Vt. – Members of law enforcement from the Windham County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting party patrols June 14 through June 16 throughout the county. These proactive patrols are designed to reduce the likelihood that a teenager will be involved in a crash during the graduation season. These additional patrols are part of a larger effort to prevent underage drinking and to ensure public safety.
Patrols will take place in Townsend, Bellows Falls, and Brattleboro, and will also cover the neighboring towns. This is a great opportunity for parents to talk with their kids about never getting into a vehicle with a driver who has been drinking.
Funding for this initiative is provided through the Windham County Regional Partnership Program, which includes Deerfield Valley Community Partnership, West River Valley Thrives, Greater Falls Connections, and the Brattleboro Area Prevention Coalition.
