Law enforcement roundtable held in La Crosse

Event hosted by Republican candidates

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Law enforcement from around our area are discussing their challenges with Republican candidates.

U.S. House of Representatives candidate Derrick Van Orden and Wisconsin Senate candidate Dan Kapanke hosted round table Wednesday in La Crosse.

Discussion touched on mental health of officers, proposed laws and training practices.

La Crosse County Sheriff Jeff Wolf says the keeping the community safe isn’t about politics.

“This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. It’s not a right or left issue. It’s a right or wrong issue and that is safety of all our citizens,” said La Crosse County Sheriff.

Members from 11 different departments took part in the event.
