Major County Prosecutor’s Council
In 2013, APA created the Major County Prosecutors Council (MCPC). The Council, made up of the elected prosecuting attorneys from the most populated jurisdictions in the United States, was created to further meet the demands that prosecutors from large urban areas face in the administration of justice. This Council includes the chief prosecutors from the largest 40 jurisdictions in the country who together are prosecuting one third of the crimes in the country. Because of the size and complexity of their respective jurisdictions, many of the MCPC Offices have more issues and challenges in common with their fellow Council Members than other prosecutor offices in their home states. The MCPC provides a unique opportunity for elected prosecutors to share and learn from each other and build relationships with peers.
