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

 

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

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included emergency detention, prescription drug shopping, conceal carry for retired law enforcement officers and drunk driving.

 

"I would like to extend a thank you to Representative Meyer for organizing this successful roundtable. Each county has public safety issues that specifically affect them. While many of these issues affect the entire state, it is important for me to understand how the Department of Justice can assist Oneida County," Van Hollen said. "Sharing information between the Department of Justice, the State Legislature, and local agencies helps law enforcement at every level."

 

"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."

 

"I thank Rep. Meyer for attending and helping to put together this roundtable," said Van Hollen. "These discussions help us in state government do a better job."
