Marty Jackley: Joint federal-state cooperation to reduce violent crime

Yesterday I met with President Trump, Vice President Pence and US Attorney General Sessions to discuss strengthening public safety, including addressing violent crime, human trafficking, and controlled substances from our southern borders.

As South Dakota's Attorney General and the former Chairman of the Nation's Attorneys General, I am looking forward to working with our federal partners in continuing to strengthen public safety. Law enforcement cooperation in South Dakota involving the U.S. Attorney, Attorney General, State's Attorneys, Tribal officers, Chiefs, and Sheriffs, sets a high standard on how to better protect communities by developing task forces and sharing resources.

After our meeting, President Trump announced he has directed the Department of Justice to work with state and local law enforcement to reduce violent crime. President Trump has also said he will bring the full force and weight of the U.S. government to combat the epidemic of human trafficking.
