Modern Day Prosecution: Serving the Public’s Interests – The rewards you can expect as a new prosecutor
The work of the prosecutor resides squarely within the ambit of “public interest” law. Among the many opportunities for students who wish to enter public service, being a prosecutor is indeed among the most fulfilling public interest careers one can have. The Office of the District Attorney in each of the Commonwealth’s 67 counties seeks to serve their citizens by solving community problems in a substantive way where possible, rather than by merely accepting the success of statistical convictions. The PDAA recognizes that criminal justice is never a finished construct. Prosecutors are committed to identifying best practices and policies in order to meet the ever-changing demands of our criminal justice system. These demands require the prosecutor’s constant vigilance over the legitimate needs of law enforcement, victims, as well as the rights of the accused. As Ministers of Justice, prosecutors maintain this commitment with the highest level of integrity while performing their duties as responsible public servants for the communities they serve.
