District Attorney says criminal justice system needs reliable budget
By Eileen Fleming
New Orleans, La. – Cannizzaro told officials gathered for his State of the Criminal Justice System address that his prosecutors are more in synch with police in getting violent offenders behind bars.
But he said that he and his staff have spent too many hours justifying his budget requests.
Cannizzaro said voters should be asked to amend the city charter to give his office a dedicated stream of revenue he can depend on for budgeting his operations.
