KEEPING ORANGE COUNTY SAFE
For Three Decades, Todd Spitzer has Fought to Keep Orange County Safe
Ensured Orange County is one of the safest places in America to live, work and raise a family, even as crime has skyrocketed around the state and country.
According to the 2021-2022 Orange County Community Indicators report, Orange County’s crime index is significantly lower than comparable communities and the national average, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Fought to protect the DNA Collection Program, which reduces the likelihood of recidivism by 43%, prevents future crimes, and helps put sex offenders, kidnappers, and residential burglars behind bars.
Promoted youth prevention, after school, and gang reduction programs (GRIP) to stop crime from happening in the first place.
Consistently fought to ensure justice by raising objections to unreasonably light sentences for heinous crimes.
Created the Crimes Against Peace Officers Unit, Hate Crimes Unit, Mental Health Unit, and other specific units within the District Attorney’s Office to review conviction integrity, reduce recidivism, and address underlying mental health issues.
Vigorously and consistently defended victims’ rights.
Joint-authored Megan’s Law, chaired the campaign for Marsy’s Law, and led campaigns for Jessica’s Law and Prop 69, which requires DNA collection from all felons.
