The Wisconsin Department of Justice Holds Training Seminar for Wisconsin's New Police Chiefs


MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has announced that the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) recently completed a weeklong training seminar for Wisconsin's new police chiefs. Thirty-six Wisconsin law enforcement chief executives attended this year's program in Madison. The training is sponsored by the DOJ's Training and Standards Bureau and is held annually.


“At the Department of Justice, the theme is ‘we exist to assist.' This annual seminar demonstrates and strengthens our commitment to our local partners in law enforcement in creating safer communities across Wisconsin,” Attorney General Van Hollen said. “I have always been impressed by the quality of people who choose to serve the public. This year's class of new chiefs continues that tradition.”


Leadership, budgeting, recruitment, labor and community relations were among the topics covered during the weeklong event. Participants also were briefed on the state and federal resources that are available to assist local law enforcement agencies.
