“There’s a reason we work so closely with the schools to reduce chronic truancy: It’s a smart strategy to reduce crime in the future,” City Prosecutor Douglas Haubert said in an email. “We need to do everything in our power to keep at-risk kids in school and learning, because statistics show that dropouts are more likely to commit crime in the future.”

“Obviously, Animal Control officers can’t be everywhere at the same time, so by educating the public, we’re actually reducing the amount of resources it takes to investigate animal-cruelty cases,” Haubert said. “Hopefully, we’re saving taxpayer dollars in that way, too.”

“We think that children at an early age should learn about animal care and identify signs of cruelty,” Haubert said. “The content will be modified to be appropriate for middle-schoolers and high schoolers and adults of all ages. And these ideas must be brought home to the smaller children.”

“That’s part of our job as prosecutors: to educate the public—educate judges, educate jurors and potential jurors on what is an important area of the law,” Haubert said. “It’s not just me—I think I have a very good office, and all my prosecutors have a strong desire to prosecute cases as aggressively as possible when the case warrants it. We care a lot about Long Beach and making it a good place to live, and I think this is a part of the quality of life.

The city prosecutor’s office is a huge part of the public safety team. I’m honored to have the position, and I think that I’m making a positive impact on street-level crime in Long Beach . . . Going after gang members and quality of life crimes can significantly improve our lives. It’s one of the most rewarding things about this job.”
