District Attorney George Brauchler, elected in 2012 and re-elected in 2016, was the keynote speaker for the Cherry Creek Republican Women January meeting.
Colorado’s 18th Judicial District includes Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties. The DA’s office supports preventive programs and initiatives to reduce crime, protect victims and enhance the lives of those who live in the district. It promotes safety by fostering strong partnerships with other law enforcement agencies and the community. Brauchler’s term has seen its share of high-profile cases, including the Aurora theater shooting.
Brauchler is a Republican candidate for Colorado attor-ney general, a position that has primary authority for enforcement of consumer protection and anti-trust laws, prosecution of criminal appeals and complex white-collar crimes, training and certification of peace officers and most natural resource and environmental matters.
The Attorney General’s Office also works with all of Colorado’s 22 district attorneys and other local, state and federal law enforcement authorities to carry out the criminal-justice responsibilities.
Additionally, the attorney general is the chief legal counsel and advisor to the executive branch of state government, including the governor, all departments of state government and many state agencies, boards and commissions.
