“Ms. Yuna Lee’s death not only devastated her loved ones, but struck fear into the hearts of our AAPI neighbors, who have already suffered far too much pain in recent years. All New Yorkers deserve to be safe and secure, and we will ensure accountability for this senseless murder,” said District Attorney Bragg.
“New Yorkers must be able to trust that law enforcement officials are held to the same standards of justice as everyone else,” said District Attorney Bragg.
“As technology evolves, so does our office, and drug traffickers who think they can use the dark web to conceal their illicit activity will be caught and brought to justice,” said District Attorney Bragg.
Bragg said its creation is to further use diversion and evidence-based programming to “ensure individuals involved in the criminal justice system receive necessary services to reduce recidivism and enhance public safety.”
“The Pathways to Public Safety Division will secure dynamic, individually tailored outcomes that are proven to keep our communities safe while giving our fellow New Yorkers the help they need,” said District Attorney Bragg. “By identifying opportunities for diversion at the beginning stages of a case, instead of weeks to months after an arrest, we can increase effectiveness and break cycles of recidivism.”
