District Attorney encouraged elected leaders to support local law enforcement
both fiscally and socially at the annual training seminar for the
Orange County Association of Towns, Villages and Cities
Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler announced today that on February 20, 2017, he addressed a meeting of the Orange County Association of Towns, Villages and Cities, which had met for annual training in New York City. During his brief address District Attorney Hoovler reaffirmed his support for local law enforcement and encouraged local elected leaders to do the same. District Attorney Hoovler urged elected leaders to support law enforcement both fiscally and socially through their jobs as leaders of the twenty towns, nineteen villages and three cities in Orange County.
District Attorney Hoovler reiterated his commitment to the prosecution of narcotic offenses, quality-of-life issues, and proactive community outreach.
“Orange County is fortunate that our elected leaders support our local law enforcement officers,” said District Attorney Hoovler. “It is only by having the government, law enforcement, and the community working together that we can hope to stop the opioid epidemic which is ravaging our communities. Our current status as the number two county in the state in revenue dollars recouped from those who fraudulently obtained public monies, is only one example of what can be accomplished when civilian elected leaders, law enforcement officials and the greater community work together toward reducing crime.”
