Attorney General Van Hollen Meets With Clark County Leaders At Law Enforcement Roundtable Hosted By State Senator Pat Kreitlow And State Representative Scott Suder

NEILLSVILLE Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Clark County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Senator Pat Kreitlow and State Representative Scott Suder.


Topics discussed at the roundtable included internet crimes against children, drunk driving and OWIs, illegal immigration, school safety, and truancy.


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


"This roundtable gave us an opportunity to present a local perspective on some of the issues facing our local law enforcement today," said Senator Kreitlow. "I appreciate Attorney General Van Hollen's efforts to listen to the concerns of the people on the ground working to make our communities safer, and to help us facilitate solutions to these issues here and across Wisconsin."


"I want to thank Attorney General Van Hollen for coming to Clark County at my request to sit down with local leaders and law enforcement officials to discuss their concerns and listen to their ideas on how to make our communities better and safer places to live, work, and a raise a family," said State Representative Scott Suder. "I look forward to working with the Attorney General to address the issues raised today by making certain that law enforcement officials continue to have the tools and funding they need to improve public safety."


"Protecting public safety is a priority for state and local government," said Van Hollen. "These discussions help us do a better job."
