Van Hollen Meets With Waupaca County Leaders at Law Enforcement Roundtable Hosted By State Senator Luther Olsen


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


Topics discussed at the roundtable included truancy, Internet Crimes Against Children, alternatives to incarceration, the lack of funding for public safety, video gaming enforcement, illegal immigration enforcement and the domestic partnership lawsuit. 


"I would like to extend a thank you to Sen. Olsen 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 Waupaca County lends itself to a meaningful dialogue as to how the Department of Justice and state government can better assist Waupaca." 


"It's really great that our Attorney General is willing to go out into the trenches and listen to the law enforcement officers who keep us safe day in and day out," said Olsen. "These officers know best what will help them to do their jobs better, these face to face meetings with JB are a valuable way to make sure law enforcement officers have the information and the tools they need." 


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