DECI - Drug Endangered Children Initiative
|The Eau Claire County Drug Endangered Children (DEC) Team is committed to providing the most current evidence-based training and resources available to investigate cases involving drug endangered children in our community. Our goal is to ensure children receive the services, resources and medical care they need to ensure their well-being.|
The National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children defines drug endangered children as children who are at risk of suffering physical or emotional harm as a result of illegal drug use, possession, manufacturing, cultivation, or distribution. They may also be children whose caretaker’s substance misuse interferes with the caretaker’s ability to parent and provide a safe and nurturing environment.
The Eau Claire County Drug Endangered Children Team is composed of representatives from the City of Eau Claire Police Department, Eau Claire County Sheriff's Office, Altoona Police Department, Eau Claire Department of Human Services, Eau Claire Juvenile Court Intake, Department of Corrections, Eau Claire Child Advocacy Center, Eau Claire Corporation Counsel and Eau Claire District Attorney's Office.
