On January 3, 2011, Kamala D. Harris was sworn in as the 32nd Attorney General of the State of California. Attorney General Harris told Californians in her inaugural address that she will seek innovative approaches to tackling the state’s toughest problems.
As chief law enforcement officer for the state, Attorney General Harris has focused on combating transnational gangs that are trafficking guns, drugs, and human beings through the state. She has travelled to every region of California to further collaboration with local law enforcement and committed resources to increase the adoption of technology and data-driven policing in order to improve efficiency in investigations and prosecutions. Attorney General Harris has long advocated the reduction of California’s
recidivism rate, which is the nation’s highest.
