Final Thoughts

The Hinds County District Attorney’s Office’s Annual Report for 2023 reflects a year of significant achievements.  With the additional resources we received, we secured more indictments and brought more cases to a positive disposition than any prior year.  We are seeing more positive results such as an overall decrease in the homicide rate.  As a result, our capital city is a safer place to live and work.

 The challenges we face, including the need for additional prosecutors, funding adjustments, and timely access to scientific analysis, underscore the critical importance of continued support and collaboration with the Mississippi Legislature, the Hinds County Board of Supervisors, and other local, State, and Federal stakeholders.

As we look to 2024 and beyond, our focus remains on building safer communities through Smart Justice initiatives, comprehensive prosecution efforts, and continued collaboration with law enforcement; our local, State, and Federal partners; and the community we serve. The Hinds County District Attorney’s Office is grateful for the support received and remains dedicated to upholding justice and accountability in Hinds County. Together, we are building safer communities for our families.'
