"The Organization of the DA's Office" is the topic, presented by District Attorney Kari Brandenburg. The Office of the Second Judicial District Attorney is responsible for the effective and efficient prosecution of criminal cases, in order to assure a safer community with a better quality of life. Victim advocates provide dedicated and personalized support during times of crisis and uncertainty, lessening the trauma that often accompanies victimization. Alternative sentencing programs help first time, nonviolent offenders avoid felony convictions, while providing them the support and structure they need to overcome challenges in their lives. The DA's office also includes many specialized Criminal Divisions. Find out more by making a reservation to attend the luncheon! More detail is included in the July Voter.
Reservations are required. Call 505-884-8441 to reserve your place. The luncheon cost is $17 for members and $20 for non-members. Call or email (lunch at lwvcnm dot org) with your reservation. The deadline is July 11, Monday preferably before 10am.
