Attorney General Van Hollen Meets With Grant County Leaders At Law Enforcement Roundtable Hosted By State Senator Dale Schultz


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


 Topics discussed at the roundtable included John Doe investigations, an update on the DNA backlog at the State Crime Lab, Internet Crimes Against Children, Training & Standards rule changes for law enforcement, and drunk driving.


 "Meetings like this put together law enforcement and lawmakers, enabling us to have face-to-face, frank discussions about public safety matters of local and statewide concern," said Van Hollen. "At the Department of Justice we exist to assist local law enforcement. By listening to the concerns of local public safety leaders, I can better assess how the Department of Justice might further assist local law enforcement."


 "We all share the same goal of a safe community for our family," said Senator Dale Schultz. "The roundtable gave us good insights into each others' challenges and ways to work together more effectively. Thanks go to the local leaders who participated and to Attorney General Van Hollen for initiating the event."


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