Born in Menands, NY, on June 6, 1928. Deukmejian established the legal Opinion Unit, School Safety Center, California Crime Watch prevention program, the Appellate Action Group for criminal cases, a computerized index of consumer complaints and a campaign to eradicate California marijuana fields.

In 1980, he launched a pilot program to test the capabilities of latent print cold search technology (Automated Latent Print System “ALPS”) - a computerized system used to identify criminal suspects by comparing fingerprints. He also successfully argued cases before the California Supreme Court to uphold the “use-a-gun go to prison” and death penalty laws. Following his tenure as Attorney General, he was elected Governor.
