As District Attorney, I am dedicated to the strong, swift prosecution of juvenile offenders. I am equally dedicated to the prevention of crime. Preventing crime means working with the community. Participating in collaborative efforts that include schools, police and community leaders is an important tool in prevention. It is my hope that this overview of juvenile proceedings within our jurisdiction will be helpful to your having a better understanding of the juvenile criminal justice system.
I look forward to our continued work with the members of this community to keep the Cape and Islands a safe environment for our children.
