In order to make Idaho the best place for children to grow up, we must promote the message that alcohol use by young people is unacceptable; reduce the availability of alcohol to youth; and improve the effectiveness of law enforcement, says Nancy Lopez, Coordinator of the state Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws program.
The Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections is the agency designated by the Governor to administer funds received through the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
