Commonly asked questions about District Attorneys

How can I report a crime to the District Attorney's office?

Citizens can report crimes to local police. The police then present crime reports and evidence to the district attorney for possible prosecution.

Who makes the decision to file charges in a specific case?

The deputy district attorney or one of the assistant district attorneys usually makes the decision about whether to charge a suspected criminal, as well as deciding the specific charges.

Can I get a copy of a police report from the DA's office?

Although district attorney offices have a copy of the police report, they aren't responsible for issuing it. Instead, you should ask your local police for a copy.
