[Balsam Lake, Wis.] – Today, Adam Jarchow announced that nearly two dozen law enforcement leaders from across Wisconsin have endorsed his campaign just three weeks since its launch. The leaders cited the need for an attorney general who will stand with law enforcement amidst a rise in violent crime across the state. The announcement comes as law enforcement personnel continue to find themselves under attack, with three officers in Milwaukee shot in the last month alone.
Jarchow’s message to law enforcement is simple: You will always have an ally in Madison when I am attorney general.
“As Polk County Sheriff, I’ve gotten to know Adam over many years. There has been no more vocal supporter of law enforcement than him,” said Polk County Sheriff Brent Waak. “With crime on the rise in too many communities across Wisconsin, we need an attorney general who will provide the resources and support that law enforcement needs to protect our streets. Adam has the vision and fortitude to make that happen, and I’m proud to endorse him.”
“I’m honored to be supported by a growing list of law enforcement leaders who are joining our campaign to restore leadership to the attorney general’s office,” said Adam Jarchow. “For too long, Josh Kaul has fanned the flames with rhetoric that undermines the brave men and women who serve. I will stand shoulder to shoulder with law enforcement to reverse the rise in violent crime in Wisconsin.”
