#WeekInJustice: Week 157
- We had another successful violent crime jury trial, where a shooter was held accountable for shooting at a worker who was just trying to do his auto repossession job.
- We participated in MLK events over the weekend, and I spoke to marchers about the importance of justice reform, and my experience at a conference in Alabama last year on the subject. I shared my thoughts on how our office is working to make the system better for everyone in Pima County. You can see it here on our Facebook page.
- In Civil, we successfully proved that humans can make administrative errors and saved the County $10 million dollars in fines.
- And in community relations, we held our first annual report meeting of the year with the Amphi Neighborhood Association, who also recognized Community Outreach Coordinator Sofia Blue for successfully mediating interactions between neighborhoods and law enforcement. On top of that, there was special moment for Tucsonan Hassan Clement.
He received a Safety Champion Award for promoting the wellbeing of his community for his selfless advocacy for tenant’s rights to fair and proper housing. By the way it was his birthday as well. Happy Birthday Hassan!
Crime will continue to go down as trust goes up in our community, and this is the middle ground we look to provide the County with.
To be continued,
