MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker says other state justice agencies should do what Wisconsin does -- have the attorney general, governor, and Legislature work together.
Walker spoke to the National Association of Attorneys General Wednesday, in the final day of its conference in Milwaukee.
Walker said it's important for state leaders to give their law enforcement operations much needed support.
The Republican governor said cooperation in Wisconsin has resulted in more aggressive efforts against child sex offenders and sex trafficking. Walker also mentioned the successes of the state Justice Department's unit on Internet crimes against children.
Van Hollen told the conference that his department and the rest of the Capitol don't always see eye to eye on every issue but, "If you're both focused on public safety, and you're both focused on doing the right thing, you can accomplish some great things."
In recent years, that's been easier when the attorney general is of the same party as the governor and Legislature -- like it is now as Republicans control state government.
