June 13, 2019 -- Santa Monica City Attorney Lane Dilg last week was elected President of the Los Angeles County Prosecutors Association (LACPA).

The group provides a forum to share information on key issues facing countywide prosecutors and offers them educational opportunities throughout the region, City officials said.

“Our greatest challenges are regional and shared,” Dilg said in a statement Thursday. “I am grateful for the opportunity to lead LACPA’s efforts to strengthen innovation and effectiveness in criminal justice programs across the County.

"By working and learning together, we bring stronger results home to our communities,” Dilg said.

The Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office is charged with prosecuting all misdemeanor criminal offenses arising in the City, ranging from domestic abuse, drunk driving, and burglaries, to minor infractions, City officials said.

The Office’s Criminal Division also works with City staff, the Los Angeles Superior Court and the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office to run a Homeless Community Court.

The court focuses on connecting homeless individuals charged with non-violent offenses to housing and services.

Before being hired to replace retiring City Attorney Marsha Moutrie two years ago, Dilg was senior counsel to UCLA and an appellate representative to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth District,

She previously spent four years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Central District Office in California, prosecuting cases involving public corruption, organized crime, human trafficking, fraud and other federal criminal offenses.

Dilg follows Long Beach City Prosecutor Doug Haubert as LACPA president, a one-year term.
