MADISON (WKOW) -- The troubled youth prisons in Wisconsin are going through a transformation after years of problems according to two top administrators who oversee the facilities.
Ron Hermes, Administrator of the Division of Juvenile Corrections and Lance Horozewski, Assistant Administrator discuss what they call a “culture change” at Lincoln Hills and Copper Lake.
The change comes as both juvenile facilities have experienced a whirlwind of issues as early as 2012, including abuse and neglect towards inmates and guards.
Horozweski explains how the facilities are implementing new training practices for staff such as de-escalation, preventative practices, and developing relationships with juveniles.
As the Senate impeachment trial gets underway, new information emerges from a close associate to President Trump’s personal lawyer. Congressman Glenn Grothman (R-Milwaukee) explains why the new revelations don’t change his views on impeachment.
Democrats are organizing in key battleground states after President Trump shattered expectations as the first Republicans to win Wisconsin since 1984. Democrat National Committee Chair Tom Perez explains their plan to win back the state by launching Organizing Corps 2020.
Perez also defends agendas pushed forth by Democrats running for president, which some Republicans call radical and unrealistic.
