Prosecutor Survey

Jefferson City - This afternoon the Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (MAPA) and Missouri Office of Prosecution Services (MOPS) announced and discussed a survey that was conducted last year of Missouri’s Prosecuting Attorneys’ Offices. The survey was conducted by the National Prosecutors’ Consortium, a collaboration between Justice and Security Strategies and the Prosecutors’ Center for Excellence. The survey is being conducted on the county level across the United States on a state-by-state basis. The survey consists of two reports and is designed to support prosecutors’ needs by (1) collecting a thorough baseline of information on the operation of county prosecutors’ offices and (2) identification of offices that have adopted innovative programs. Included in each report are also references to the various diversion programs Missouri’s prosecutors have been using before the current emphasis on criminal justice reform.
Speakers included St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney Tim Lohmar, President of MAPA and MOPS; Greene County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Patterson, President-elect of MAPA and vice chair of MOPS; Christian County Prosecuting Attorney Amy Fite, immediate past President of MAPA and MOPS; Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd, a past president of MAPA and MOPS; and Darrell Moore, Executive Director of MAPA and MOPS.
