Aisha N. Braveboy

Prince George's County State's Attorney

As State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy is the top law enforcement officer in the county, responsible for the safety and security of over 900,000 citizens. Her motto for the Office under her administration is that “Crime is personal…personal to the victim, personal to the community and personal to the State’s Attorney’s Office.” 

Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ms. Braveboy has been at the forefront with effective solutions to prevent the spread of the virus and support the community. She was the first in the State to lead the nation in implementing ‘Operation Safe Release’, which was a proactive way of reducing the spread of the coronavirus in the jail.

 

In addition, Ms. Braveboy continues to work with non-profits and County agencies to ensure that victims of abuse and domestic violence receive the resources and support they need during the pandemic.
