Innovative programs described in these state-level papers funded by the DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs are newly developed initiatives undertaken by an office in keeping with its unique resources and the needs of its community. We seek to highlight those offices that are embracing their new role by working within their capacity to bring effective and proactive programs to their communities.
The prosecutor offices that participated in the survey and that are highlighted in each state report range in size and in the types of communities that they serve. Some serve in large bustling cities and others work in suburban districts or rural areas. The available resources and staff vary greatly between the offices, as does the needs of their communities. Below are the states where innovation reports where developed. Each report can be found here:
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- South Carolina
