Los Angeles – The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office was one of only four prosecutor’s offices in the nation chosen today to receive a $435,000 Smart Prosecution grant by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs (OJP).
“Being chosen as a Smart Prosecution site bolsters my Office’s commitment to innovative, neighborhood-centered justice,” said Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer. “These resources will help us engage our community in tackling the quality of life crimes that are neighborhood priorities.”
The OJP grant will cover two full-time positions for two years to staff the City Attorney’s Neighborhood Justice Panels in South Los Angeles and Hollywood. The panels are part of Feuer’s Neighborhood Justice Program, which will begin in October.
