TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)- Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Pat Harrington is taking on a new role. He was recently elected as President of the Association of Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys. The association works with lawmakers at the capitol. The prosecutors involved in the association give their expert testimony to lawmakers who are writing bills on new public safety laws.
Sometimes prosecutors involved give advice on laws that need to be repealed, and they also give advice on laws they think need to be brought to Indiana.
Pat Harrington says he is honored to be serving as the president of the association and that he looks forward to helping lawmakers pass laws that will better the state and Tippecanoe County.
"The goal is so we do have good laws that come out of Indianapolis when it comes to public safety,” said Pat Harrington, the Tippecanoe County Prosecutor.
Harrington was elected by 91 other prosecutors in the state to be the president of the association.
He will serve as president for a year. He has been active members of the association for 6 years. A list of laws the association will advising lawmakers on is expected to come out next week.
