PIERRE, S.D. - The 2016 National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) Summer Meeting has come to a close and Attorney General Marty Jackley has finished his term as President.


Jackley delivered his final remarks last night during the final session of the NAAG Summer Meeting in Burlington, Vermont.  “It has been an honor to lead our nation’s Attorneys General as we work to protect our communities and to provide our citizens a strong voice.  I am very proud of the leadership and hard work of our South Dakota Attorney General's Office team,” said Jackley.

Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen was elected president of the National Association of Attorneys General. “I am privileged to be able to pass the gavel to Attorney General Jepsen and am confident that he will carry this leadership role with a continued commitment to public safety.  He possesses the strong qualities that embody the NAAG mission,” said Jackley.


During Jackley’s tenure as president of NAAG, Jackley focused on the everyday challenges that face law enforcement nationwide.  The Presidential Initiative Summit was held in Deadwood May 2-3, 2016. Summit highlights included officer-involved shootings, body-worn cameras policy, school shootings, campus sexual assaults and mental health issues and fighting our national meth and opioid epidemic.
