The goal of Operation Spotlight is to develop lasting relationships between a particular neighborhood and its service providers to build a stronger community. Each Community Prosecutor leads a Technical Team which is committed to pooling their knowledge and resources in order to identify and address issues faced by the neighborhood. The teams consist of law enforcement and government agencies such as the Sheriff’s Office, San Jose Police Department, Councilmembers, Supervisors, Code, Public Health, and Probation Departments.
The Community Prosecutor and the Technical Team meet monthly to develop and implement strategies to address problems that have been identified by the community. The Community Prosecutor, in conjunction with the team partners, hold events, meetings and trainings in the Spotlighted Areas.
