Law Enforcement Coalition Meets Governor Evers
For the past 8 years the County Law Enforcement Professionals of Wisconsin has been part of a Law Enforcement Coalition who have pushed for legislation that would provide continued health insurance to the families of a law enforcement officer who is killed in the line of duty. Today Governor Tony Evers signed a law ensuring families of fallen Wisconsin officers will receive continued health insurance. Executive Director, Bob Wierenga, of the CLEPW was invited to attend the bill signing.
The CLEPW was one of several organizations advocating for passage of Senate Bill 435, which we are happy to report was signed into law at the end of March.2017 Act 166 allows emergency medical technician (EMT) or first responder to render first aid service to a domestic animal under certain circumstances. Under the Act, an EMT or first responder who, in the course of responding to a call for service, encounters a domestic animal that is sick or injured may render any first aid service to the domestic animal before the animal is transferred to a veterinarian for further treatment if the first aid service is in the scope of practice of the license or certification of that EMT or first responder when applied to human beings.
