Janesville police call underage drinking an expensive problem.

Deputy Police Chief Dan Davis says officers are reinforcing efforts this week to curb the problem. On Monday compliance checks of 17 liquor stores found three sold alcohol to underage patrons. Thursday and Friday Davis says patrols will be increased in anticipation of complaint calls related to parties after graduation at Craig and Parker High Schools.

He says for some reason allowing underage persons to drink after graduation is considered a right of passage in Wisconsin.
