#WeekInJustice: Week 170

Quite a bit of fun and joy occurred this week: yes, it’s possible AND necessary for all these fine folks here at the People’s Office to celebrate the successes in our work. 

  • On Monday night, City Councilman Paul Cunningham hosted an Eastside Jam Music Festival as a benefit for parks’ improvement, and all major City and County leaders were there to enjoy the music, dance a bit, and be so very glad for our collaborative metro relationships. 
  • On Tuesday, our Courthouse Dog Arrow turned 6 and ate a doggie birthday cake to the delight of all staff.  You can see the birthday video here.
  • On Wednesday, Danny Lesandrini, our office Data Guru returned from a conference in St. Louis absolutely beaming with enthusiasm at all the ways our new online case management system can continue to develop to support our so very, very busy prosecutors. 
  • On Thursday, we participated in a panel to discuss Fair Chance Hiring practices, where employers bring on loyal, valued, highly skilled employees returning home from incarceration as a way to benefit our economy and drive down the crime rate.  (See Utah State study with data from 1990 to 2020.)
  • Also, on Thursday we celebrated a long and wonderful career in law enforcement. Detective Alex Montoya is retiring after spending 22 years at the Pima County Sheriff’s Department and 10 years with us at PCAO. He was presented with a shadowbox by Chief Pacheco to mark the occasion. Enjoy your retirement, Alex!!!
  • And tonight, our Courthouse Dog program will be honored at a Black and White Gala! Our Victim Services Division will get to enjoy and revel, and this warms my heart. 

To be continued,
