Answer: There is no single greatest threat. We will continue to improve on our tactical plan that focuses our office’s resources on those objectives that will protect our citizens the most in many areas. In partnership with law enforcement, we proactively target offenders that pose the greatest threat to safety, security and quality of life. Early case involvement and review is key to this strategy so that we can establish prosecutorial goals for every case. If the case does not end with conviction, the front-end work is wasted. This will keep the most violent offenders off of our streets, period.
