Community Outreach: Innovative and Proactive Programs 

SAO elder abuse

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.
