RESTORING TRUST BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
Without any additional staffing or funding, Anita delivered on her promise to restore the concept of community-based prosecutions in the office, opening four new “Community Justice Centers” in the city of Chicago and suburbs to enable prosecutors to work more closely with community residents on issues that directly affect the community’s quality of life.
The new Community Justice Centers are staffed by Assistant State’s Attorneys and Victim Witness Specialists who work closely with community residents and organizations on the prosecution and prevention of local crime.
