Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg unveiled eight Community Action Plans Tuesday regarding officer-involved shootings, bail reform, and other matters of public interest, that were formed following months of collaboration with 60 community leaders and experts who made policy recommendations for her administration.

 

“We listen to the community,” Ogg said. “We are evidence-based and data driven, but it is important to know how the community wants tax dollars spent to enhance public safety.”

 

Shortly after taking office in January, Ogg built a Transition Committee to reflect Harris County’s diverse population and bring together a mix of experiences and perspectives to guide her administration’s priorities in criminal justice reform.

 

Former Houston Police Chief C. O. Bradford; Thurgood Marshall School of Law professor Lydia D. Johnson; and former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia, were among those who participated on the transition teams.

 

Others included grass-roots activists; small-business owners; health-care providers; academics;  politicians, defense lawyers and judges.

 

“Direct community engagement is crucial to building trust between the district attorney and the people,” Bradford said. “Harris County will be a safer place and Kim Ogg will be a better district attorney as a result of her genuinely seeking participation from the community.”

 

The Transition Team was organized into specialized committees that identified issues, reviewed data, and made recommendations.

 

They probed areas such as officer-involved shootings; evidence integrity;  equality; immigration; bail-bond reform, mental health; diversity; technology and victim’s rights.

 

The Transition Team recommendations are posted on the Harris County District Attorney’s Office  website, as are official responses, which are incorporated into Community Action Plans. They can be accessed at http://app.dao.hctx.net/node/234
