“As your Pierce County Prosecutor, it is my job to help keep our community safe. Keeping our community safe is not our only duty in the Prosecutor’s Office, but it is our main duty. The Community Advisory Committee of ordinary citizens provides valuable insight into the communities we serve. Their input helps us achieve our goal of a safer community.”
