​“Los Angeles County’s Criminal Justice System—Then and Now”

Steve Cooley served as the 41st District Attorney of Los Angeles County.  With more than 2,000 employees, including roughly 1,000 prosecutors and nearly 300 investigators, the L.A. County D.A.’s Office is the largest local prosecutorial office in the country.

Mr. Cooley is currently very actively involved in the Recall George Gascón movement. He is the co-author of three nonfiction books, “Blue Lives Matter—In the Line of Duty,” “Blue Lives in Jeopardy—When the Badge Becomes the Target,” and “Blue Lives Under Fire— Shootouts” in production.

Mr. Cooley was a career prosecutor. He joined the office in 1973 as a law clerk and rose through the ranks. Nearly three decades later, he was elected District Attorney in 2000 by a landslide. He was overwhelmingly re-elected four years later. In 2008, he became the first Los Angeles County District Attorney in 70 years to be re-elected to a third consecutive term.

A graduate of Cal State Los Angeles – where he was twice elected Student Body President – Mr. Cooley later attended the University of Southern California Law Center. He finished first in his Criminal Law class. While studying at USC, Mr. Cooley joined the Los Angeles Police Department’s Reserve Officer Program in February 1972. He proudly donned the LAPD uniform and worked patrol, assigned to Newton Street Station for nearly six years. Mr. Cooley has been repeatedly honored by the legal community and civic groups for the innovative programs he initiated in the District Attorney’s Office, and for his open and evenhanded approach to the goal of securing justice for all.

Steve Cooley presently serves as President and CEO of Steve Cooley & Associates, a consulting and problem solving company. Mr. Cooley and his wife Jana have been married for 46 years. They have two grown children and three grandchildren.
