Madison, Wisconsin:  The Wisconsin Troopers Association (WTA) announced its support for Tim Michels as the next Governor of Wisconsin. 

“Tim Michels has the support of men and women in law enforcement across Wisconsin.  Following our discussion with Tim Michels, it became clear our priorities align,” stated WTA Executive Director Matt Johnson. 

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.

“We need to recognize and value candidates who prioritize reducing crime and increasing public safety for all who live, work and travel our state,” continued Johnson.  “From his commitment to funding additional police officers to his plan to reduce all types of crime, Tim Michels will work with us to improve safety in Wisconsin.”

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.

“Our members put their lives on the line each day as the statewide police force that can quickly mobilize to cover every corner of the state,” emphasized Johnson.  “In order to be the most effective, we have to have the support of leaders at the top.  Tim Michels is that candidate.”
