DA Question 2

Are there any new or existing programs you would start, end, or expand? If yes, please explain.Last Name
My first year as DA emphasized the need for proactive solutions. I began researching new programs and engaging in dialogue with advocates. Out of those conversations grew the SAVE violence prevention program, our Cold Case homicide unit, our Human Trafficking Unit, and our Community Engagement initiative. Each of these required the creation of positions and funding within my office. These are all original programs for our county and state. Kagay
I would: increase funding and expand the current drug court size and eligibility; increase diversion usage; establish a restorative justice program; end the use of mass indictments through grand juries, implement a txt reminder system for court dates, expand victim services, expand bond supervision services, restructure cash bail, continue work with SAVE, start a mental health/veterans court, implement effective and robust data collection Luttrell
