PHOENIX— The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office today launched a new communication tool in an ongoing effort to provide information to the community. “The Opening Statement” is a blog that will focus on key topics in criminal justice and public safety. This new on-line forum is the latest step in providing information on some of the most important issues facing our community. The blog can be accessed through the MCAO homepage or directly at https://openingstatementblog.com/
“By offering this open communication with the public, sharing how this office works every day to prevent crime and seek justice for those impacted by crime and how we partner with other stakeholders to enhance public safety, I believe we can together better achieve our public safety goals,” said County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “As a new avenue of communication, The Opening Statement blog will help us provide clarity and set the record straight with facts and objective information about our criminal justice system.”
The Opening Statement will provide regular posts on a wide array of topics, from community policing and prosecution to the nexus of substance abuse and crime, profiles of criminal cases that have been resolved and interesting facts about the County Attorney’s Office.
