WAUSAU - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Marathon County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Representative Jerry Petrowski, State Representative Scott Suder and State Representative Donna Seidel.

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included domestic violence prevention, state prosecutor shortages and pay progression for assistant district attorneys, drunk driving, and internet crimes against children.

 

"I would like to extend a thank you to Representatives Petrowski, Suder and Seidel for organizing this successful roundtable.
