Recently, San Bernardino County District Attorney Mike Ramos was selected to fill a position on the National Leadership Council of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, a new council that includes nearly 30 law enforcement leaders and violence survivors from around the country.
Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, seeks innovative answers to issues related to juvenile crime. The role of the leadership council is to help advise the program to continue leading efforts to advance evidence-based solutions that steer kids away from crime and toward productive lives.
According to Ramos, who has been a member of the program since 2003, “In our mission to reduce and ultimately prevent crime, we must continue to invest in our kids on the front end.” He added, “It is during this time we have the best chance of keeping our kids on a positive course and preventing them from becoming adult offenders.”
Ramos concluded, “As a member of the Leadership Council, I look forward to working with the organization and my fellow colleagues in law enforcement to make sure our kids have every opportunity to succeed in this world.”
