TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The attorney general of Kansas has been named to a leadership position in the National Association of Attorneys General.

The office of Attorney General Derek Schmidt says in a release Schmidt was elected this week as the association’s Midwest chairman.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/17R9qV9 ) the organization is a nonpartisan group that includes the attorneys general in Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan.

The association sets initiatives for law enforcement and has recently focused on combating human trafficking, protecting consumer privacy and promoting child safety. It also provides education and training opportunities for attorneys general and staff in the Midwest.
