PIERRE, S.D.- Attorney General Marty Jackley will conclude his 2015-2016 National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) presidential term this week at the NAAG Summer Meeting in Vermont, June 21-23, 2016.
“Our nation’s Attorneys General are strong leaders that protect our citizens and provide our States a voice heard loud and clear,” said Jackley. “It has been an honor to lead the State Attorneys General over the last year, and I am proud of our accomplishments driven by strong bipartisan cooperation and the ability to put aside political differences to best serve our citizens.”
Attorney General Jackley will deliver his final remarks to include highlights of his presidential initiative hosted in South Dakota “To Protect & Serve with 21st Century Policing”.
