ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orange-Osceola State Attorney Monique Worrell is trying to bridge the gap between Central Florida residents and the criminal justice system.
But she says it won’t work without input from the community.
Worrell brought together a group of community members to be a part of a team to bring that accountability and empowerment to her office.
“I want it to be real, I want it to be authentic,” she said.
Worrell met with the Community Engagement Committee to talk about how it will help address major issues in Orange and Osceola counties, including police reform, juvenile crime and drugs.
“I can’t be everywhere but I can deputize my assistant state attorneys to go out in the community and bring back what are the concerns, what am I missing,” Worrell said.
