Webinar: “Pandemic Lessons, Police Accountability and the Shifting Role of the Prosecutor”

In the past two months, prosecutors' offices and court systems across the nation have seen their daily work to maintain constitutional justice uprooted, altered, and halted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently, in response to George Floyd’s death, the criminal justice system also began facing calls for expanded police accountability. The role of the prosecutor is changing rapidly and the steps that prosecutors take in the upcoming months could impact the justice system for years to come.

The “Capital Litigation Improvement Project Series: Mass Shootings and Victim Considerations” webinar is now available on the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s YouTube page. During this webinar, District Attorney General George Brauchler—who prosecuted James Holmes, the Aurora, Colorado gunman—outlines the issues district attorneys face while prosecuting mass shooting cases. He also shares lessons learned from his experiences prosecuting similar cases.
