Who We Are
The District Attorney of Yolo County, as an elected executive officer, is empowered by the California Constitution and the California Government Code to serve as the chief law enforcement officer of the County. As the constitutional officer and public prosecutor representing "The People", the District Attorney is vested with the independent power to conduct prosecutions for public offenses, to detect crime and to investigate criminal activity. The District Attorney advises the Grand Jury in its investigations. By law, the District Attorney also sponsors and participates in programs to improve the administration of justice. In order to fulfill the duties of public prosecutor, the District Attorney employs attorneys (deputy district attorneys), investigators, and support staff.
