At the recent meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG), Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin was named co-chair of the Executive Working Group on Prosecutorial Relations and a member of the Criminal Law Committee.
“I am honored to be appointed to these committees, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to identify issues of mutual concern and develop ways in which to improve the working relationship among law enforcement agencies on the state, local and federal levels,” said Attorney General Kilmartin.
The Executive Working Group on Prosecutorial Relations is comprised of representatives from NAAG, the National District Attorneys Association and the U.S. Department of Justice. The group was formed more than 30 years ago in an effort to increase cooperation among federal, state and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies. The overriding purpose is to provide a forum for federal, state and local law enforcement to engage in open and candid discussions regarding areas of mutual concern.
The Criminal Law Committee provides support to Attorneys General as it relates to the enforcement of state criminal statutes, as well as the attendant policy, legislative, and programmatic issues related to state criminal law. The Committee also provides support by monitoring federal legislation and state legislative initiatives that may be of interest to Attorneys General.
