ATTORNEY GENERAL VAN HOLLEN MEETS WITH VILAS COUNTY LEADERS AT LAW ENFORCEMENT ROUNDTABLE HOSTED BY STATE REPRESENTATIVE DAN MEYER
 

EAGLE RIVER - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Vilas County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Representative Dan Meyer.

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included prescription drugs in schools, training of police officers, videoconferencing, and the need for more judges.

 

"I would like to extend a thank you to Representative Meyer 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 Vilas County lends itself to a meaningful dialogue as to how the Department of Justice and state government can better assist Vilas County."

 

"I appreciate Attorney General Van Hollen taking the time to visit with us in the Northwoods and listen to local law enforcement and judicial concerns from those who work directly in those areas," said Meyer.

 

"I am also grateful to all those local officials who participated," said Meyer. "Opening the lines of communication on these issues furthers the discussion about how government can improve its law enforcement and judicial responsibilities."

 

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