Community outreach is founded on the idea that prosecutors have a responsibility not only to prosecute cases, but to solve public safety problems, prevent crime and improve public confidence in the justice system. Thus, our Community Outreach Unit works closely with schools, businesses, religious institutions, and other community groups to address and impact crime before it occurs.
Assistant State’s Attorneys attend community meetings, police roll calls, and other local events to connect with Montgomery County residents and to learn about community issues. Their goal is to proactively identify problem areas and to allocate the necessary resources to meet the needs of the community.
