Building Trust with Public Defenders
Public Defender Liaison
The office has offered a concierge system of justice for the rich and powerful, and another system for everyone else. In order to truly achieve justice for all, especially for communities of color and low-income communities, we must improve our relationship with public defenders. Diana will:
- Establish a Public Defender Liaison, to work directly with public defenders and their organizations.
- Hold monthly meetings with public defenders to ensure communication, accountability, and transparency.
- Offer a joint training program for junior prosecutors and junior public defenders to foster better understanding of their respective roles.
