Walker and Van Hollen Announcing Law Enforcement Plans Today
Getting DNA evidence is apparently a high priority for governor Walker. Walker stops in La Crosse this afternoon to share his plans to fund some law enforcement initiatives. Among them is a three million dollar grant to fund GPS monitoring for some getting a restraining order for the first time. Also, a million dollars to add five state employees to work in the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. There's also a 6 million dollar plan to pay for DNA swabbing of everyone arrested for a felony, children and adults convicted of any misdemeanors, as well as samples from some who have been simply arrested for a misdemeanor. Walker and attorney general J.B. Van Hollen are making several quick stops around the state today to tout the law enforcement plans.
