Prosecutors' Center for Excellence

Prosecutors’ Center for Excellence works with prosecutors to improve the criminal justice system and to address emerging issues.  PCE develops and supports statewide Best Practices Committees for prosecutors. These non-partisan committees, which consist of prosecutors from all regions of a state, provide a process for prosecutors to proactively address the issues of the day and to strive to improve the criminal justice system. PCE provides technical assistance, training, materials, expert advice, and research on policy issues relevant to the work of prosecutors.
