“Local law enforcement officers need better resources and more financial support to keep our communities safe.

State Rep. Mike Mueller, chair of the House Government Operations Committee, today led a committee hearing on his plan to better support local law enforcement agencies and help police officers build even better relationships with the communities they serve.
