Worcester County States Attorney Kris Heiser

AKris Heisert the March 19, 2019, meeting of the Snow Hill Rotary Club, Worcester County States Attorney Kris Heiser spoke about her priorities for the office.

First, is the commitment to “community prosecution,” which is to provide a specific attorney as a point of contact for each community in the county.  Second, an increased focus on vulnerable victim crimes, which are typically underreported.  And third, to seek alternatives to trial for eligible candidates such as first offenders for minor offenses.

In carrying out these priorities, she intends to increase community outreach by her office in partnership with police.
