Van Hollen Meets With Adams County Leaders At Law Enforcement Roundtable


ADAMS - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Adams County at a law enforcement roundtable held at the Adams City Hall. 


Topics discussed at the roundtable included an update on the pending DNA cases at the State Crime Lab, school safety, possession and retention of law enforcement records, Internet Crimes Against Children, and the underfunding of law enforcement training & standards.


"I would like to extend a thank you to all of the participants for attending and taking part in today's discussion. 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 Adams County lends itself to a meaningful dialogue as to how the Department of Justice and state government can better assist Adams County."


"Opening up lines of communication on these issues furthers the discussion about how government can improve its law enforcement and judicial responsibilities," said Van Hollen. "Protecting public safety is a priority of state government, and meetings like these help state government do a better job."
