ATTORNEY GENERAL VAN HOLLEN MEETS WITH CRAWFORD COUNTY LEADERS AT LAW ENFORCEMENT ROUNDTABLE HOSTED BY STATE REPRESENTATIVE LEE NERISON
 

Prairie du Chien - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Crawford County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Representative Lee Nerison.

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included Internet Crimes Against Children, resources for law enforcement, Byrne Grant funding, an update on the crime lab backlog and restitution for crime victims.

 

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

 

"I appreciate Attorney General Van Hollen taking the time to visit with us and to listen to local law enforcement. I think it was a really good meeting, "said Representative Nerison. "The Attorney General and I received a lot of good ideas that we can take back to Madison and work on to assist law enforcement."

 

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