Herald staff ohotos Hidalgo County Wolf Pack r naking a dent in illegal underage drinking Courtesy submission Underage drinking contin- ues to be a problem in Hidalgo County. The Wolf Pack has teamed up with law enforcement, schools and other concerned citi- zens from Hidalgo County to try and combat underage drinking in our communities. Wolf Pack members drive around on nights alongside law enforcement and offer the officers an extra set of eyes and ears. Wolf Pack works in other ways too. Wolf Pack has a com- munity call-in number in which members from Hidalgo County can call in and anonymously re- port underage drinking activity. The number to report underage drinking is 575-590-1432. In 2012 there were nine re- ferrals made to the juvenile and adult probation offices. In 2013 Poster Contest being hosted by La Frontera NM on June 19-20 La Frontera NM and the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Depart- ment will be hosting a poster contest at the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office (720 East 2 "d Street) in Lordsburg on June 19 and 20, 2014. The poster contest will focus on the dangers of prescription pain killers in our food, water and nature. The contest is open to 3 'd, 4 th, 5 th and 6 t graders. Prizes will be given to first and second place in each grade category, winners will be announced at the Lordsburg-Hidalgo Library on July 2, 2014 following the Sum- mer Reading Program awards ceremony at 1:00 p.m. For more information, contact Edgar Gomez at 575-542-3304 or Riley Allen at 575-542-3833. there were 14. Currently in 2014, data upplied to us from law enforcement and juvenile and adult probation offices, we have 13 citations and arrests--7 mi- nors (18 and over) allowing themselves to be served and 6 youth (17 and under). We feel that the Wolf Pack has contributed to this, in that having a Wolf Pack in Hidalgo County increases the perception of risk and influences some youth to not drink and others to be more cautious. Additionally, we feel that the Wolf Pack in- creases the perceived level of risk for those adults in the com- munity who "Social Host" or contribute to the delinquency of a minor. The next Wolf Pack meet- ing will be July 31, 2014 at the BYA building, 402 DeMoss St. in Lordsburg at 1:00 p.m. All citizens in Hidalgo County are welcome to come and we en- courage you to become a part of the team. spending cuts since recession Submitted by NM VOICES FOR New Mexico is one of the 48 states ties (CBPP).
