Van Hollen Meets With Forest County Leaders At Law Enforcement Roundtable


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


Topics discussed at the roundtable included cuts to public safety in the state budget, drunk driving, Internet Crimes Against Children and interoperability and communications concerns.


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


"I would like to thank the Attorney General for taking the time to meet with local law enforcement officials," said Rep. Mursau. "There are a lot of things we can teach each other and this type of roundtable discussion is beneficial for everybody involved."


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