Methamphetamine Response Committee
The Methamphetamine Response Committee was formed in March of 2015 in response to increase in methamphetamine cases in the court system and in the community. The partnership and collaboration with team members will increase our capacity to effectively address the issues resulting from the increased use of methamphetamine in our community.
The primary goal of the committee is having less methamphetamine use and methamphetamine related crime in our community by focusing our work in three areas:
A collaborative effort to educate the general public on all issues related to methamphetamine and our community. These efforts include, but are not limited to: presentations, the consistent use of social media, and the production of educational materials including video, literature, and other general information related to the use and effects of methamphetamine.

Court System Response
A collaborative effort of court system actors to immediately identify cases involving methamphetamine. This work includes utilization of bond protocol such as random testing, early intervention AODA services, and the consistent tracking and use of data to inform decisions and case outcomes.
Post Disposition Response
A collaborative effort involving multiple agencies and offices that has a specific focus on the case dispositions of individuals who are involved with methamphetamine. This work includes specific case plans, programs, and services for individuals once court cases have concluded, with goals of appropriate rehabilitation and reduction of recidivism for those involved with methamphetamine.
