Priorities & Plans

Modernizing the SAO

Movements in response to the murder of George Floyd are building on an everlasting desire to reform our country’s justice system. To work toward a more perfect union, we must modernize the mechanisms for delivering justice. Floridians deserve a system that can be held accountable, with the transparency we need to develop trust. This means modernizing the SAO by introducing technology to streamline casework; using data to bring the workings of our office into the sunshine, where the SAO belongs; improving community engagement with the SAO’s office; expanding diversion programs; ending the school-to-prison pipeline; updating marijuana laws; ending cash bail; establishing a conviction integrity and civil rights unit; and more.
