The newly-formed Prosecutors and Elected Officials (PEO) Special Interest Group (SIG) aims to bring together prosecutors, elected officials, and other criminal justice policy experts from across the globe who are interested in advancing connections and collaborations to forge and promote public health responses to issues often criminalized or addressed in a punitive way through the justice system. In some jurisdictions chief prosecutors are also elected officials, and thus are leaders of systemic criminal justice reform as well as the head of traditional prosecution functions in their individual offices. The PEO SIG is designed to be a forum for chief prosecutors and other leaders who play similar roles in national and local criminal justice systems, or those with related interests and expertise.
