Shelby County D.A. Gen. Amy Weirich elected to lead Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference Executive Committee

Local Memphis:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee’s 31 elected District Attorneys General have elected new members of the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference Executive Committee.

The Honorable Amy Weirich, 30th District Attorney General, which serves Shelby County, has been elected to serve as the committee’s president.

“To serve as president of the DA’s conference is a great honor,” Gen. Weirich said. “Our 31 judicial districts vary in size and issues; however, we all share the common goals of protecting victims, preventing crime and fighting for justice for all citizens of Tennessee. Some of our challenges include high family violence rates, excess of deadly drug dealers and limited resources to do our jobs. I look forward to continuing our fight to improve public safety from Memphis to Mountain City.”
