RE: Recommendation for Esther Suarez as United States Attorney
Dear Senator Booker,
I would like to take this opportunity to offer my professional recommendation for Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez to be appointed as the United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey. As the professional organization of Community Policing practitioners, we understand the criminal Justice needs and issues of our State.
Prosecutor Suarez has been a steadfast advocate for collaborative Justice in a meaningful way. Her leadership in Hudson County has proven that you can be tough on crime, responsive to the needs of the minority community and focus on restorative justice.
Prosecutor Suarez has focused resources on reducing violent crime while building community consensus and pushing law enforcement to undertake meaningful reforms. Suarez is compassionate and able to make tough decisions unbridled by politics and
These uncertain times demand a proven law enforcement leader to assume the job of our State’s federal prosecutor.
I have been a law enforcement executive for almost thirty years and have had the honor of
being the President of the NJ County Prosecutor’s Office Chiefs of Detectives Association and I understand the complexity of our justice system. I strongly recommend Prosecutor Esther Suarez to be appointed as the United States Attorney for the District of NJ. Our State needs and deserves a true reformer and leader in a time of crisis. I invite you to contact me directly for more specific information. I appreciate your consideration and
hard work for New Jersey.
Chief William Schievella (ret.)
President, NJ Police Community Affairs Officers Association
