Crime Prevention

The District Attorney is the chief law enforcement officer in Harris County, and is responsible for prosecuting all the felonies, misdemeanors and serious traffic offenses committed in the county.


Crime prevention programs are a priority for the District Attorney’s Office. One of the best ways to promote community safety is to teach our citizens how to protect themselves from becoming crime victims.
