Tenth Judicial District Attorney General Steve Crump has been elected by fellow members of the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference (TNDAGC) to serve on the organization’s executive committee.
This is the fourth time in six years that Crump’s colleagues have chosen him to serve as a member of the executive committee.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve again on the executive committee,” Crump said.
“I look forward to working with the committee on public safety policies that protect the communities we serve across the great state of Tennessee.”
“The conference was created to support Tennessee’s elected district attorneys in their constitutional duty to seek justice and protect our citizens. The executive committee guides that work,” said Guy R. Jones, the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference’s newly elected executive director. “District attorneys have a unique role that reaches beyond prosecuting criminal acts. Seeking justice requires difficult choices, new approaches and a commitment to protecting victims and their rights. General Crump’s leadership will be vital as we continue in this mission.”
Crump was appointed district attorney general of the 10th Judicial District by then-Gov. Bill Haslam on July 1, 2014. He was elected later that year to a full eight-year term.
In addition to serving on the executive committee, he was also selected to chair the legislative committee for the fifth straight year.
A graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law, Crump lives in Cleveland with his wife, Theresa. They have two children, Sarah and Emily.
