Community Prosecution Program Report
COMMUNITY PROSECUTION IN MEMPHIS/SHELBY COUNTY
According to the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, community prosecution (CP) programs “[encourage] collaboration between prosecutors, criminal justice partners and the community to create safer neighborhoods” (Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, n.d.). This model specifically introduces a community-centered approach to identifying key problems in neighborhoods and determining how to best respond to and mitigate these problems. CP programs also require that participating prosecutors facilitate and encourage communication, coordination, and partnerships between each participating criminal justice agency from arrest to punishment (National District Attorneys Association, n.d.).
