The use and production of meth in the U.P. has been on the rise over the past few years, and agencies like the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team have been depleting their funds combating the problem.
The Marquette County Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention Coalition hosted a fundraiser tonight to help the U.P.S.E.T. team at Superior Lanes in Marquette.
There were plenty of law enforcement agencies and their families who came out to support U.P.S.E.T., showing that they all want to help one another.
“It’s awesome to see all these people come out and support this event,” Michigan State Police Trooper Stacey Rasanen said. “We’re all working together for the same cause and to make our community safer and to clean it up.”
“(Some of the funds) are going to go training, as far as money for the police officers that work on the U.P.S.E.T. team, so it’s really great to see people come out and support this event.”
For $10, you could get unlimited bowling and pizza, with all proceeds helping U.P.S.E.T.’s operational costs.
