Houston and Henry County District Attorney Candidate, Arthur Medley, says his crime fighting philosophy is, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of crime."
While speaking at the GOP Women's Luncheon today, he explained there are two parts to fighting crime:
Prosecution, which is reactionary, and community involvement, which is preventative.
"We've gotta deal with the bad guys. We can't have people breaking into our homes or robbing our businesses or child molesters running around our community. But at the same time we've got to start with the children and be in the school and out in the community developing and nurturing a relationship between the general community and the law enforcement community," said Medley.
Medley went on to say he sees the same defendants going through the legal system multiple times.
He says he can stop the vicious cycle.
