District Attorney Jackie Lacey headed a long list of law enforcement and civic leaders to celebrate the re-opening of the Hall of Justice, "It's not a building, it's a piece of living history" Lacey said, recounting some of the building's historic events. Although Lacey oversaw the final two years of the project her predecessor Steve Cooley started, she paid tribute to Cooley for his success in establishing the Hall of Justice as the home of the DA's Office management, special trial units and Bureau of Investigation.

the future headquarters for the DA's Office.
The renovation of the Hall of Justice has resulted in a truly impressive building. It's imposing exterior is perhaps only surpassed by the magnificence it's interior.

"You feel like you're walking into a place where important decisions are made that affect the lives of others," DA Jackie Lacey said at the re-dedication ceremony. Few would disagree.
