Attorney General J.B.
Van Hollen Introduces
Wisconsin Crime Alert
Attorney J.B. Van
Hollen introduced a new initiative to fight crime recently. This network
links law enforcement and the business community in a partnership to combat
crime on a new level in Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Crime
Alert Network is a fax and email system that enables local law enforcement
to alert participating businesses of criminal activity or notify them of a
missing person. The alert can be tailored to specific types of businesses
and geographic regions in order to provide the most useful information to
those who are most likely affected by that crime and those who have
information that could lead to the arrest of a suspect or the safe recovery
of a missing child.
appropriate information to private citizens about criminal activity, law
enforcement increases its eyes and ears, resulting in more suspects being
caught and more missing children being recovered," said Van Hollen. "The
Wisconsin Crime Alert Network is a major step forward in assisting local law
enforcement in their everyday quest to protect the citizens of Wisconsin."
