The U.S. Attorney's Office of the Eastern District of California is involved in a number of programs and projects in our community. Some of our major efforts are listed below.
The staff in the Eastern District of California Office are strongly encouraged to give back to the community we serve through a variety of avenues.
The Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee sponsors and co-sponsors training seminars for federal, state and local law enforcement agencies addressing a variety of subjects.
Project Safe Childhood (PSC) is a Department of Justice initiative launched in 2006 that aims to combat the proliferation of technology-facilitated sexual exploitation crimes against children. The threat of sexual predators soliciting children for physical sexual contact is well-known and serious; the danger of perpetrators who produce, distribute, and possess child pornography is equally dramatic and disturbing.
Established in 1994 in the wake of a string of hate-related fire bombings throughout Sacramento, the Greater Sacramento Area Task Force on Hate Crimes consists of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and community organizations dedicated to preventing and combating hate crimes. The Task Force is sponsored and administered by the United States Attorney’s Office.
Victims of crime may experience feelings of confusion, frustration, fear and anger. The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California and the Victim/Witness Unit is dedicated to making sure that victims of federal crimes and their family members are treated with compassion, fairness and respect.
Weed & Seed is a national initiative by the Department of Justice to "weed" out crime in a targeted community and then to "seed" that area with positive resources designed to permanently uplift and improve the quality of life for its children and families.
