The best way to create a safer Berkshire County is to prevent crime before it happens. I believe that the District Attorney's office must be involved with crime prevention as well as crime prosecution.
In Berkshire County we have many community organizations that are doing the important work of preventing crime - from youth activity organizations to job training, from life skills development to drug treatment, from educational development programs to housing placement - and many more. As District Attorney, I will assist in empowering these groups so that they continue to expand their work in improving the quality of life in our community.
As District Attorney, I will create a safer Berkshire County by engaging existing community organizations and creating new alliances between the community and law enforcement, so that we can address the root causes of crime and stop crime before it happens.
