The latest round of coronavirus money in Wisconsin is going for crime prevention.
Governor Tony Evers yesterday unveiled plans to spend 45 million-dollars on crime prevention and victim services. None of the money is earmarked for more police officers. The governor says the money is an investment in safer communities. Much of the money would go to violence prevention efforts in and around Milwaukee. The city has seen a spike in violent crimes, specifically murders and shootings, over the past two years. Republicans in the state say the governor’s efforts are too little, too late.
