Jim Palmer is the executive director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association. He says it’s a wonderful show of support for the organizations and what they represent.
Governor Walker signed a bill into law, setting up the donation.
Republican Rep. David Steffen of Howard was a co-author of the proposal.
