Van Hollen Meets With Sheboygan County Leaders At Law Enforcement Roundtable Hosted By State Senator Joe Leibham

 

SHEBOYGAN - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Sheboygan County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Senator Joe Leibham. 

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included the adverse impact to law enforcement of the DOJ budget cuts, the need for more state prosecutors, open carry memo, truth-in-sentencing, Internet Crimes Against Children and time requirements for data collection for the racial profiling analysis.

 

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

 

"I appreciate that Attorney General Van Hollen visited with us today in Sheboygan County and took the time to listen to and dialog with our area law enforcement personnel and public leaders," Senator Leibham said. "Public safety and the proper enforcement of our laws are two key issues in Sheboygan and it is helpful when the state's top law enforcement officer is out actively listening to and assisting those in the field."

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