Welcome to the website for the United States Attorney's Office for the Western District of Pennsylvania. This site offers information about who we are and how we work to ensure the safety of the citizens of our District.
The U.S. Attorney's Office is responsible for prosecuting federal crimes in the District, including crimes related to national security, civil rights, public corruption, fraud, child exploitation, firearms and narcotics. The office also defends the United States in civil cases and collects debts owed to the United States.
As the lead federal law enforcement agency in Western Pennsylvania, we work cooperatively with law enforcement agencies at all levels: city police departments, county sheriffs' departments, county prosecutors, state offices, federal law enforcement agencies and, on occasion, foreign law enforcement agencies and international police. Some of our common partners in criminal prosecutions are the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Drug Enforcement Administration; the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI); U.S. Secret Service; IRS-Criminal Investigation; the U.S. Postal Inspection Service; and the U.S. Marshals Service.
Thank you for visiting.
