ATTORNEY GENERAL VAN HOLLEN MEETS WITH FLORENCE COUNTY LEADERS AT LAW ENFORCEMENT ROUNDTABLE HOSTED BY STATE REPRESENTATIVE JEFF MURSAU
 

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

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included Internet Crimes Against Children, sex offender placement in communities, Byrne Grant funding, Heroin use, the recent bridge shooting in Marinette County, and prescription drug use and abuse.

 

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

 

"Cooperation is the key to more effective law enforcement," said Mursau. "I believe today's meeting helps foster that cooperation."

 

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