Within the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, one of the cornerstones of successful prosecution is the idea of community engagement and involvement. Therefore, the Offices takes a proactive approach to community outreach. The Community Prosecution program, under which several of the District Attorney’s key initiatives fall, is the Office’s primary vehicle for community engagement. Community Prosecutors represent the District Attorney at community gatherings, forums, Neighborhood Planning Unit (NPU) meetings, and a host of other events. District Attorney Howard also plays an active role in the community with membership and participation in several organizations (see bio). Mr. Howard also makes guest appearances, participates in panel discussions and serves in a variety of speaking capacities throughout the County on a weekly basis.
