Please take some time to view this video about your Neighborhood Justice Office. One of the advantages of being in office for awhile is that you get to know how processes work so that unique services can be brought into our community.
The Neighborhood Justice Office were founded on the idea that the prosecutors have a responsibility not only to prosecute cases but to solve public safety problems, prevent crime and improve the quality of life for communities. Working out of neighborhood offices, the Neighborhood Justice Office provide a tangible presence of the State’s Attorney’s Office. The offices collaborate and partner with the police/CAPS, businesses, faith based organizations, elected officials, schools, government entities, social service agencies and community groups. The goal is met in three ways: prosecution, problem solving and prevention.
This office and these prosecutors give us the ability to focus on cases we feel are important to us. As always please call my office 773.769.1140 with any questions. Thanks, Pat O’Connor.
