About the Board

District Attorney Hoovler established the Community Advisory Board (CAB) after his election in November 2013 and before taking office at the end of the year. The CAB is made up of community leaders and representatives who provide the District Attorney with advice on how a community prosecution program might work in Orange County.

The CAB has created seven regional boards, composed of a cross-section of community representatives in those regions, who discuss issues of crime and crime-prevention strategies in smaller areas of Orange County. Those regional boards meet approximately twice a year to discuss regional crime and prevention issues
