NEW CANAAN - New Canaan's police chief says his department is about to launch its new diversionary program for those caught drinking at underage parties.

The program offers those found with alcohol at underage parties a chance to attend educational workshops with their parents or to face charges.

Just this past weekend, police say they broke up a party with a lot of alcohol and arrested of the host of the party and another teen.

Police say the officers also got the names of several other teens there, and they will decide whether to offer them the chance to be part of the department's upcoming program.
