Paul Gets an Award

I am really proud of Paul. He and his office received a state award this week for his office's crisis response unit. The award was presented by the current AG. This award really tells you a lot about who Paul is and what drives him - he really believes in being a voice for victims. That's what moves him and that's what he's most passionate about. It's why he has embraced tough prosecutions in the past that a lot of prosecutors might shy away from. His crisis response unit assists victims and others affected by tragedies by responding to scenes immediately. Most DA offices in the state don't have crisis response units. Paul has worked hard to make the justice system work more for victims.
