Madison, Wisconsin:  The Wisconsin Troopers Association (WTA) today announced Senator Van Wanggaard as Senator of the Year. 

“Senator Wanggaard has been a steadfast supporter of the men and women of law enforcement throughout his entire legislative career,” stated WTA Executive Director Matt Johnson.  “In a time when communities are looking to increase public safety, we need exceptional leaders like Van Wanggaard.  We are proud to name him Senator of the Year.”

The WTA strongly supports candidates who work to maintain high standards in state law enforcement, who understand the value of a statewide police force, and who prioritize reducing crime and increasing public safety.

“It is more critical than ever to recognize and value candidates who prioritize reducing crime and increasing public safety for all who live, work and travel our state,” continued Johnson.  “Van Wanggaard has always worked with us to do just that.”

Members of the WTA serve as troopers and inspectors who can mobilize in emergency situations to cover every corner of the state. The men and women of the patrol work to apprehend drug dealers, provide crime scene analysis and crash reconstruction, in addition to highway patrol and commercial vehicle enforcement.
