As an agent of public safety, Wes believes that the responsibilities of the State’s Attorney’s Office should not be limited to reacting to crimes after they occur. That is why he made it a top priority for his office to take a proactive role in the community it serves. Over the past three years, he has visited schools, libraries, churches, and senior centers across the county to conduct informative programs specially designed to prevent crime through education.
The knowledge and expertise Wes has garnered over his career are a unique asset to the community not only in a courtroom, but also in a classroom. Whether he is discussing fraudulent schemes devised to exploit senior citizens, examining the dangers confronting our children on the internet, or conducting honest conversations with students and parents alike about the dangers of substance abuse, Wes equips those who are vulnerable to crime with the skills and resources they need to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
