ATTORNEY GENERAL VAN HOLLEN MEETS WITH DANE COUNTY LEADERS AT LAW ENFORCEMENT ROUNDTABLE
 

MADISON - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Dane County at a law enforcement roundtable held at the Oregon Police Department. Today's community discussion was the 15th in a statewide series that Van Hollen has undertaken.

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included the need for more state prosecutors, updating public records to keep up with technology, police training, Byrne Grant funding and juvenile justice issues.

 

"I would 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 Dane County lends itself to a meaningful dialogue as to how the Department of Justice and state government can better assist Dane County."

 

Also attending today's law enforcement roundtable discussion were Representative Brett Davis and Representative Gary Hebl.

 

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