Wes's Mission

Anne Arundel County is Safer with Wes Adams

I am Wes Adams, I was elected and took over the Anne Arundel State's Attorney's office in January 2015, my mission was to focus on three things to make this county safer;

  • Prosecution - Build the strongest cases possible to secure the proper convictions and the fairest sentences, focus on drugs dealers, violent gangs and organized crime.

  •  Rehabilitation - Expand and grow the avenues for rehabilitating offenders, so that we can address the root causes of criminal behavior and attempt to solve them.

  • Education - Develop a strong education and prevention program in our community so that we can keep people away from the criminal justice system in the first place!

It is working - Crime is Down in Anne Arundel County!
