Menomonie - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Dunn County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Senators Sheila Harsdorf and Pat Kreitlow and State Representatives John Murtha and Jeff Smith.
