Prosecutors Form First-In-The Nation Alliance to Fight the Politics of Mass Incarceration and End the Failed Strategies of the Past

SACRAMENTO – Today, current and former elected District Attorneys from across the state joined forces to create the Prosecutors Alliance of California.

The Alliance stands alone among law enforcement organizations in its commitment to modern and sustainable approaches to achieving safety and community health at the state and local level. It is the nation’s first progressive law enforcement association to have an advocacy arm, enabling the group to weigh in on state legislation, ballot initiatives and candidate races.
