EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Meth-related incidents are becoming more prominent in Eau Claire, but now the Eau Claire Police Department is getting a better picture of what the problem looks like in the city.

Eau Claire Police have designed a map showing trends throughout the city, how many meth related incidents are happening and where.

This will help them target the problem and other meth related crimes.

Deputy Chief Matt Rokus says the information helps the department on many different levels.

"It helps our officers focus our efforts on areas where methamphetamine is more prevalent and it's useful for us as well to educate our officers and the community on where methamphetamine is most frequently used,” said Rokus

Nov. 30 is national Meth Awareness Day and the Eau Claire Police Department will hold an event where they will discuss the way meth impacts the community and what can be done to reduce meth use in the city.
