Jim Hood

As Attorney General of Mississippi, Jim Hood is an aggressive prosecutor and dedicated public servant who is committed to protecting the citizens of our state and to making Mississippi a safer place to live.

Since his election in 2003, and earlier as Third Judicial District Attorney in North Mississippi, Attorney General Hood has consistently advocated for crime victims and worked to safeguard Mississippi’s most vulnerable citizens, children and the elderly. Now serving his third term in office, Attorney General Hood continues to implement new programs and to expand the successful initiatives begun during his first term.

Attorney General Hood is a passionate champion of children. He works tirelessly to prevent children from being abused and exploited, and to rescue those who have already fallen prey to those who do them harm. He founded the nation’s leading Cyber Crime Unit and Fusion Center. Based in the Attorney General’s office, the Cyber Crime Fusion Center is the hub from which state, federal, and local agencies investigate and prosecute internet predators who target children and vulnerable adults.
