J.B. Van Hollen invites public to justice council session
MADISON (AP) — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is inviting the public to attend a Criminal Justice Coordinating Council listening session next week.
The council is set to meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Continuing Education. The council held listening sessions in Eau Claire and Green By in May.
Gov. Scott Walker created the council through an executive order in April. The 20-member panel is supposed to find ways to improve cooperation between law enforcement agencies and the state.
Van Hollen and Department of Corrections Secretary Gary Hamblin lead the group.
