values AND PRIORITIES
VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS
I will work closely and compassionately with victims and survivors of violent crime so that they are treated with dignity and respect. I will recognize the lived realities of victims and see them as more than a witness in a case.
I will ensure the racial disparities that exist in society are not made worse by our office. I will advocate for initiatives that help reduce disparities in the criminal legal system and in our communities.
I will work with our partners and neighbors in support of initiatives that educate Plymouth County residents about the role and impact of the District Attorney’s office. I will ensure community access in order to inform the office’s priorities and approaches to public safety.
I will hold myself, staff and law enforcement partners accountable to the residents of Plymouth County, to perform our duties at the highest standard, with integrity, and courtesy to all. I will also hold those who have caused harm accountable in a fair and reasonable manner, and make sure that the public is fully aware of the office’s policies and practices, to restore public trust in the office.
I will identify less punitive and more restorative and transformative means of dealing with individuals struggling with substance use and mental health disorders. I will manage and allocate resources of the office by investing in community-based alternatives and programs that increase positive outcomes for the community.
