ATTORNEY GENERAL VAN HOLLEN MEETS WITH DODGE COUNTY LEADERS AT LAW ENFORCEMENT ROUNDTABLE HOSTED BY STATE SENATOR SCOTT FITZGERALD AND STATE REPRESENTATIVE JEFF FITZGERALD
 

JUNEAU - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Dodge County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Senator Scott Fitzgerald and State Representative Jeff Fitzgerald.

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included an update on the State Crime Lab, participation in the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, use of technology in law enforcement, requiring psychological evaluations for law enforcement officers, and increased penalties for drunk drivers.

"I would like to extend a thank you to Senator Fitzgerald and Representative Fitzgerald for organizing this successful roundtable. I would also like to thank all of the participants for attending and taking part in the discussions. Every county and community in Wisconsin faces different public safety challenges," said Van Hollen. "Having the opportunity to listen to local law enforcement, community leaders and elected officials from Dodge County lends itself to a meaningful dialogue as to how the Department of Justice and state government can better assist Dodge County."

 

"I was pleased to have this opportunity for dialogue between local law enforcement officials, the Attorney General and the Legislature" said Sen. Scott Fitzgerald. "With cooperation and communication between state and local officials, Wisconsin will continue to be a safe place to live and raise a family."

 

"Communications is vital before, during and after a crisis. By getting people involved early on, we can have better communication as we progress, through all levels of government, to a safer Wisconsin," said Rep. Jeff Fitzgerald.

 

"Protecting public safety is a priority of state government, and meetings like these help state government do a better job," said Van Hollen.
