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.
