SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – San Bernardino County District Attorney Mike Ramos and members of the NDDA executive committee met with Attorney General Jeff Sessions today to push public safety and victims’ rights.
In the meeting, Attorney General Sessions and District Attorney Ramos—who is also the current president of the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA)—discussed further strengthening the relationship between elected District Attorneys and the Department of Justice.
According to Ramos, this joint effort has become even more necessary following the December 2nd terrorist attack in San Bernardino and similar attacks across the nation.
“Today’s meeting with the Attorney General was productive and left me feeling optimistic about the future of law enforcement and public safety,” said Ramos. “During the course of our conversation Mr. Sessions not only indicated his intentions to protect our peace officers, but he said that he would like to see our county’s Crimes Against Peace Officers Unit protocol and potentially use it at the federal level to protect federal peace officers.”
In addition, District Attorney Ramos and Attorney General Sessions spoke specifically about reducing gang violence and the drug epidemic across America.
“Now, more than ever, is the time that we as members of the justice community need to stand up and strengthen our resolve to protect the rights of our victims and public safety.”
