Our next General Meeting will be on Weds September 18th,
Speaker: DIANA BECTON – CONTRA COSTA DISTRICT ATTORNEY
Contra Costa District Attorney Diana Becton currently leads an office of approximately 200 lawyers, investigators, and staff. She sets policy and priorities for the office, works with our police chiefs to solve law enforcement challenges, and develops programs to break the cycle of crime in our community. She is responsible for a budget of over $40 million. As a judge for 22 years, Diana Becton handed criminal, civil and environmental prosecutions and lawsuits, and oversaw cases in our juvenile justice system. Elected Presiding Judge of Contra Costa courts by her peers, Diana managed a budget of over $50 million. District Attorney Becton was appointed in September 2017 and is the first woman and first person of color ever to serve as District Attorney — in an office that opened in 1850. She brings a new, progressive vision to meet the challenges we face in our criminal justice system.
