Van Hollen Meets With Buffalo County Leaders At Law Enforcement Roundtable Hosted By Representative Danou


ALMA - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Buffalo County at a law enforcement roundtable hosted by State Representative Chris Danou.


Topics discussed at the roundtable included the lack of law enforcement training, the memo on open carry, criminal illegal aliens and the lack of probation and parole agents.


“I would like to extend a thank you to Representative Danou for organizing this successful roundtable. I would also like to thank 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 Buffalo County lends itself to a meaningful dialogue as to how the Department of Justice and state government can better assist Buffalo County."


“The Buffalo County Roundtable was a great way for area officials to come together and hear concerns regarding law enforcement and public safety issues in our area," said State Representative Chris Danou.


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