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

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included prescription drug abuse, Internet Crimes Against Children, Byrne Grant funding and drunk driving.

 

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

 

"State officials, local government and community leaders must work together on criminal justice issues," Friske said. "Today we focused on, and remain committed to, improving criminal justice in Langlade County and throughout Wisconsin."

 

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

 

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