Community Outreach: Innovative and Proactive Programs
Community outreach is founded on the idea that prosecutors have a responsibility not only to prosecute cases, but to solve public safety problems, prevent crime and improve public confidence in the justice system. Thus, our Community Outreach Unit works closely with schools, businesses, religious institutions, and other community groups to address and impact crime before it occurs.
Assistant State’s Attorneys attend community meetings, police roll calls, and other local events to connect with Montgomery County residents and to learn about community issues. Their goal is to proactively identify problem areas and to allocate the necessary resources to meet the needs of the community.
The Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office is involved in the following programs:
- Senior Citizen Presentations
- Identifying and prosecuting community impact cases.
- Police Academy Training
- Internet Safety and Cyberbullying (view video on CyberSafety Webite Program)
- Safe Teen Dating
- Alcohol and Drug Prevention
- Every 15 Minutes Programs
- Truancy Intervention Programs
- Community Meetings
- Neighborhood Watch Programs
- *If you know of a school, senior citizen, or community group that would be interested in a presentation, please contact our office directly at 240-777-7300
