Creation of Civil Rights Division:

For the first time ever, the Bexar County District Attorney’s office has a Civil Rights Division dedicated to investigating officer-involved shootings, deaths of individuals while in custody, or excessive use of force by law enforcement cases that are filed with the District Attorney’s Office.  Joe created this as a unique, separate division that reports directly to him to limit any conflicts of interest and ensure that justice is being administered equally in Bexar County.
