New DA Hopes to Rebuild Office, Regain Public Trust

After more than two years of turmoil and investigations into the 10th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, the new man in the job says a top priority will be rebuilding the office and regaining public trust. In an interview with the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Steve Crump said he will take a hands-on approach to resetting how justice is served within the district. His goals include improving intelligence sharing among law enforcement, restructuring caseloads to improve efficiency and expertise, and being more responsive to crime victims and families.
