La Crosse Police Planning Nothing Special for New Smoking Law
Just another law to enforce. That's the response from La Crosse police when we asked about enforcing the new statewide indoor workplace smoking ban that goes into effect next week. Police lieutenant Bob Berndt says, an officer will be able to respond to complaints or anyone he sees smoking where they shouldn't be. At that point, says Berndt, a $164 ticket could be issued based on the officer's discretion. Berndt doesn't expect his department to stage any indoor smoking crackdowns in the city.
