Attorney General-Elect Jeff Landry Working on Smooth, Efficient Transition at Department of Justice

BATON ROUGE, LA - Attorney General-Elect Jeff Landry has begun his efforts to reform the Department of Justice (DOJ) to better serve the people of Louisiana.

"In order to accomplish a smooth and efficient transition, I have set up a process to evaluate current DOJ employees for possible employment in the new administration," said Landry. "To ensure everyone has a fair and equal opportunity to be considered, every current employee interested in continuing his or her employment may submit a resume and an application for employment.”

Similar to other presidential, gubernatorial, and state department transition processes - Landry is communicating with at-will employees to encourage they re-apply for positions within the new Attorney General Administration. He began that process with a letter, available for download here, which thanks employees for their service and asks them to begin thinking about re-applying.

"I will also be establishing Transition Committees who will help interview current and potential employees to make recommendations for employment," continued Landry. "All applicants dedicated to an honest, ethical, and hardworking office will be given utmost consideration so, together, we will make the Department of Justice a great agency for the people of our state.”

Landry expects to name Members of Committees over the coming days.

Additionally, Landry has launched a transition website which will include information on the Inauguration when it becomes available and which currently has a live portal to accept resumes and contact information from those interested in working for DOJ. There is also a form through which citizens can contact the Attorney General-Elect. The site is located at Landry will continue to provide updates on Facebook at
