Rock County Law Enforcement Roundtable

 

JANESVILLE - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Rock County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Representative Kim Hixson and State Representative Chuck Benedict. 

 

Topics discussed at the roundtable included: Heroin use in Rock County, drunk driving, domestic violence, Internet Crimes Against Children and an update on the DNA numbers at the State Crime Lab .

 

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

 

“I thank Representative Hixson and Representative Benedict for attending and helping to put together this roundtable,” said Van Hollen. “These discussions help us in state government do a better job.”
