Charme Allen, 6th District Attorney General, has been elected by the District Attorneys General throughout the state to serve on the organization’s Executive Committee. In this position, Gen. Allen will play a crucial role in guiding the overall administration of justice in Tennessee.

 “I am honored to serve on the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference’s Executive Committee,” Gen. Charme Allen said. “Alongside my distinguished colleagues, we will continue to strengthen and introduce statewide policies that prevent crime, promote public safety, and protect crime victims.”

“The Executive Committee is at the heart of every decision we make in our work to improve public safety and provide for a more prompt and efficient administration of justice throughout this great state,” explained TNDAGC Executive Director Guy Jones. “I’m confident Gen. Allen will uphold this responsibility admirably.”

Charme P. Allen is a veteran prosecutor with more than 30 years of experience.  In 2014, General Allen was elected as the first female district attorney general of the 6th Judicial District.

After earning her law degree from the University of Tennessee College of Law, she became a full-time assistant district attorney general, pursuing her passion for seeking justice and helping victims of crimes. Her model for successful prosecution not only involves enforcing the law and seeking punishment for crime, but it also requires a dedication to the prevention of crime at its source.

The Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference was created by the General Assembly in 1961 to provide for a more prompt and efficient administration of justice in the courts of the state. It is composed of the elected District Attorneys General from the state’s 32 judicial districts. www.tndagc.org
