Opioid Epidemic - Mike Thurston for Waukesha County District Attorney

On August 1, 2022, Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow declared fentanyl a community health crisis. In Waukesha County, drug-related deaths became the leading non-natural cause of death for adults ages 18-45 in 2020 and 2021. In 2021, at least ninety-two people died from drug-related deaths. For our law enforcement partners in Waukesha County, these numbers reflect a war that we having been waging over the past 15 years to keep Waukesha County safe. We have a strong network of law enforcement and community partners who are committed to neutralizing this opioid crisis that continues to sweep across our nation. I will do everything I can to see that our Office remains committed to mitigating this crisis.
