Cowles Applauds Northeast Wisconsin TAD Grants 

MADISON– Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) released the following statement after it was announced that Shawano County was awarded more than $107,000 to support a newly established adult drug court and will join other successful treatment and diversion (TAD) programs in Northeast Wisconsin: 

“I’ve attended a number of graduations from the Brown County drug courts, which has caused me to quickly become a supporter of the treatment and diversion model for nonviolent drug offenders. By using diversion methods and rehabilitation, we’re reducing recidivism and saving taxpayer funds while improving our communities. This is truly a win-win scenario, and I was proud to support the state’s continued investment in TAD during the passage of the 2019-2021 State Budget.”
