Earlier this week, the Nolan Center for Justice’s Prosecutor and Law Enforcement Advisory Council released their Conservative Principles of Prosecution. These principles are intended to serve as a foundation to ensure prosecutors and law enforcement leaders promote public safety, uphold the integrity of the profession, and foster public confidence in the criminal justice system. Recognizing the need for center-right prosecutors and law enforcement leaders open to systemic improvements, our Prosecutors and Law Enforcement Advisory Council is chaired by former Acting United States Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and is composed of leaders with law enforcement backgrounds at federal, state, and local levels. Serving as a leading voice in the country, the Council met in early November for a two-day retreat in order to draft and finalize these standards of the profession.
It is our hope that these principles will serve as a tool and encouragement to prosecutors throughout the country as they serve the people whom granted them their power. Learn more here.
