Law Enforcement Bill Package

On Wednesday January 5th, a legislative package was introduced to support law enforcement here in Wisconsin. Unlike other efforts that have sought to delegitimize or undermine confidence in law enforcement, I am proud to support efforts to recruit, train, and invest in our law enforcement officers. As a lawmaker who backs the badge, I will vote for these bills so that we can make Wisconsin safer.
