Los Angeles –Even as he doubles his Neighborhood Prosecutor Program, City Attorney Mike Feuer has announced that more will be on their way.
“Neighborhood Prosecutors are community problem solvers and make a real difference in people’s daily lives,” said Feuer while standing with his Office’s Neighborhood Prosecutors on the steps of City Hall. “When I ran for this job I said that I would double the number of Neighborhood Prosecutors. We have done that. Today I am also proud to announce that I will be hiring an additional five Neighborhood Prosecutors in the next few months, bringing the number to 21.”
The Neighborhood Prosecutor Program works with law enforcement and members of the community to tackle quality of life issues impacting neighborhoods, such as vandalism, graffiti, illegal dumping, blight and different types of disturbances. The scope of work also includes gang activity, gun violence, domestic violence, trespassing, prostitution, zoning code violations, health code violations and other issues affecting quality of life.
The Neighborhood Prosecutors are embedded in the community, working closely with schools, neighborhood councils, homeowner and residents associations, chambers of commerce and other civic organizations. Feuer also announced that he and each of the 16 Neighborhood Prosecutors will hold “Meet Your Neighborhood Prosecutor Forums” during the next few months across Los Angeles.
