Discuss public safety with the State Attorney on February 23

By: Tiffany Esposito, MBA, CCE, IOM, APR, President & CEO, SWFL Inc.

Our vision at SWFL Inc. is to build a vibrant and prosperous community in Southwest Florida where businesses and people thrive. We formed our President’s Club, an exclusive group of community leaders, to meet with local experts for roundtable discussions on policies and issues that affect life locally.  

Public safety is a key component to quality of life in Southwest Florida and the primary goal of public safety professionals is to prevent danger and to protect the wellbeing of citizens, communities and organizations. Join us for our next President’s Club roundtable discussion on public safety with State Attorney Amira Fox. The roundtable will be hosted on Wednesday, February 23rd at 8:00 a.m. at The Hub.

Amira Fox is the State Attorney for the 20th Judicial Court covering Charlotte, Glades, Hendry, Collier and Lee Counties. She graduated from American University in Washington D.C.  in 1987 and received her law degree from The George Washington University in 1990.  Fox began her career as an Assistant State Attorney with the 20th Judicial Circuit in 1990. 

In November 2018, Fox was elected State Attorney, becoming the third State Attorney, and the first female State Attorney, in the history of the Circuit. She has prosecuted hundreds of cases including numerous first-degree murder death penalty cases. Fox serves as the Secretary of the Florida Prosecuting Attorney’s Association. She also serves on the Statewide Council on Human Trafficking and the Supreme Court of Florida Criminal Court Steering Committee.
