Shelby County District Atty. Gen. Steve Mulroy will host a public safety summit designed to bring law enforcement and local leaders together to tackle the issue of violent crime in Shelby County.
The Summit – to be held on August 31 – will be a collaborative, strategic planning session to determine key objectives that can be shared among the DA’S Office, law enforcement, and other city officials in Shelby County.
“We’re in a crime crisis,” Mulroy said.
“And the only way to reduce crime is for everyone to work together. The summit’s goal is to create a space for law enforcement, city, and county leaders, and the DA’s Office to brainstorm and leave with three to five objectives to which we can all commit.”
Confirmed attendees include: Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee Kevin Ritz, Juvenile Court Judge Tarik Sugarmon, state Sen. Brent Taylor (R-Memphis), state Rep. John Gillespie (R-Memphis), United States Marshal for the Western District of Tennessee Tyreece Miller, Shelby County Sheriff Floyd Bonner Jr., and leaders from MPD.
