Community Outreach

Community Outreach is a fundamental part of the Department of Justice’s comprehensive approach to fighting crime and protecting and defending the rights and interests of the residents of the Central District.  In a District as diverse and multi-faceted as the Central District, community outreach takes many different forms, ranging from Department of Justice driven programs and grants, to public efforts such as community meetings, listening tours, and training and education, both formal and informal.  

In all of these efforts, the United States Attorney’s goal is to listen, to learn, and to educate, in order to better achieve the overall mission of the office.  

Examples of the office’s participation in outreach efforts can be found under Recent Events.
Further information about federal grants available through DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs may be found at  More general information about federal grant opportunities may be found at

The person responsible for facilitating and coordinating community outreach for the Central District is Bruce Riordan, Senior Counsel.  Mr. Riordan can be reached with inquiries by email at or by mail addressed to:
