PCAO is guided by a set of Core Values that’s helping us chart a new way forward in Pima County. Among those Core Values are Transparency and Accountability, and that’s why we’ve put together a short but substantive report on the challenges we faced and the strides we made in 2021 to build safer, healthier communities across Southern Arizona.
Our Year One Review provides a snapshot of some of the data that drives our responses to crime; what we’ve done to mitigate the collateral consequences of a conviction history; how we helped victims of crime in the aftermath of traumatic events; and how our outreach efforts in neighborhoods where people never felt a connection to our Office
are changing those communities for the better.
We invite you to learn more about the Pima County Attorney’s Office and to hold us accountable.

The PCAO News section provides information on what we’re doing to serve Pima County residents and achieve reform by spotlighting original content that is accessible and easy to consume. In all of our content, we use people-first language to honor the humanity and dignity of everyone who intersects with the criminal justice system. This means that, instead of using words like “felons” or “inmates” or unnecessarily scary language to describe those accused or convicted of committing harm, you’ll see terms like “people in jail” or “people with conviction histories.” We believe that using dehumanizing, hyperbolic language only divides us, makes our communities less safe, and subjects those who have already suffered harm to further trauma. We invite you to comment, share PCAO’s original content, and follow us on all of our social media platforms.
