Menomonie - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Polk County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Senator Sheila Harsdorf and State Representative Ann Hraychuck.


Topics discussed at the roundtable included penalties for drunk driving, unfunded mandates, concealed carry permits for retired law enforcement officers, internet crimes against children and prosecutor shortages.


"I would like to thank Senator Harsdorf and Representative Hraychuck for organizing this successful roundtable. I am grateful, as well, to all of the participants for attending and taking part in the discussions. Every county and community in Wisconsin faces different public safety challenges," said Van Hollen. "Having the opportunity to listen to local law enforcement, community leaders and elected officials from Polk County lends itself to a meaningful discussion about how the Department of Justice and state government can better assist Polk County."


"Protecting public safety is my priority and should be that of state government. Meetings like these help us do a better job," said Van Hollen
