I will repair the weakened relationships between the State Attorney General and Alabama's District Attorneys.

Our law enforcement personnel and district attorneys are doing yeomen's work across this state. They are working each and every day to protect Alabama's children and families and to prosecute those who break our laws. The Attorney General should be the strongest ally and supporter of these dedicated public servants, but for several years this has not been the case. I am proud to have earned the support of police chiefs, sheriffs, and district attorneys across Alabama. I will partner with the law enforcement professionals and district attorneys across our state and work with them to reduce crime and prosecute offenders to the full extent of the law. I will use the full weight of the Attorney General's office, if elected, to press for the increased funding for crime prevention and law enforcement that is so desperately needed.
