The mission of the Office of the State’s Attorney for Howard County is to safeguard our communities through the effective prosecution of crime. Our prosecutors are sworn to seek justice within the bounds of the law, not merely to convict. As such, we take into account the specific nature of the crime, its impact on the victim and our community as a whole.
The vision of the Office of the State’s Attorney for Howard County is to look at the judicial process in a holistic way, whereby prosecutors have a powerful voice and ability to make a real impact on someone’s life. Our office is committed to accountability and transparency on all fronts. We believe in preserving the dignity of victims and their families as we strive to create a safer community for everyone.
