Lee Fisher on Crime

 


Created Ohio's first DNA database

Lee has consistently supported measures to strengthen local law enforcement and when elected to the US Senate, he will fight to fully fund the community-oriented policing program and local law enforcement block grant programs.
  • In the early 1990s, Lee worked with leaders of both political parties to assist law enforcement by initiating the creation of Ohio's first DNA database. The database consisted of samples from violent felons, unknown offenders and unidentified victims, and was made available to local and federal law enforcement as a tool for tracking down perpetrators of new crimes.
  • President Bill Clinton named Lee Fisher as Chair of The National Commission on Crime Prevention and Control, a Commission created to develop a comprehensive proposal for preventing & controlling crime and violence in the US. Unfortunately, the Commission was never funded by Congress, but his appointment by the President was a further demonstration of Lee's national reputation as a proven crime-fighter.
