Rebuilding Trust with Law Enforcement
Join us via Zoom for an important discussion with Jeffrey Rosen, District Attorney of Santa Clara County. What changes are being made within our law enforcement community? What changes might we want to see made?
Jeffrey Rosen joined the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor in 1995 and took office as the elected District Attorney in January 2011. He is nationally recognized as a leader in criminal justice reform, including jail population reduction, diversion programs for non-violent offenders, expungements for low level drug crimes and prison reform. He has:
Created a first-of-its kind Conviction Integrity Unit to investigate innocence claims and established a Cold Case Unit using the most advanced DNA technology to investigate unsolved murders.
Opened Family Justice Centers throughout the county to make sure that domestic violence survivors had easier access to legal help, shelter, food and counseling.
Implemented a 12-week Parent Project course, completed by thousands of local families, to help parents strengthen their families and keep troubled young people out of the criminal justice system.
He has received numerous awards for his innovations. His undergraduate degree is from UCLA and he received his law degree from UC Berkeley School of Law.
The one hour Zoom meeting will begin promptly at noon. Questions from attendees are encouraged and can be submitted when you register or during the event.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
