ATTORNEY GENERAL VAN HOLLEN MEETS WITH KEWAUNEE COUNTY LEADERS AT LAW ENFORCEMENT ROUNDTABLE HOSTED BY STATE REPRESENTATIVE GAREY BIES
 

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

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included open records laws, drunk driving, Internet Crimes Against Children, the Crime Alert Network, and local sex offender ordinances.

 

"I would like to extend a thank you to Representative Bies 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 Kewaunee County," Van Hollen said. "Sharing information between the Department of Justice, the State Legislature, and local agencies helps law enforcement at every level."

 

"This is a great opportunity for all of us to meet with the Attorney General to talk about public safety issues affecting the First Assembly District and Northeast Wisconsin," said Rep. Garey Bies. "For thirty years in the Door County Sheriff's Department I strove to protect public safety and this effort remains central to my work in the legislature. The roundtable discussions are an excellent way to exchange ideas on how we can enhance public safety at all levels of government."

 

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