Van Hollen Meets With Wood County Leaders At Law Enforcement Roundtable Hosted By Rep. Schneider


WISCONSIN RAPIDS - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Wood County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Representative Marlin Schneider. 


 Topics discussed at the roundtable included concerns about public safety cuts in the state budget, drunk driving, prescription drug use & abuse, restitution and issues surrounding the Circuit Court Access Program (CCAP).


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


"I am grateful to all of the local officials who participated," said Van Hollen. "Opening the lines of communication on these issues furthers the discussion about how government can improve its law enforcement and judicial responsibilities."


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