United States Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña is the Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer within this jurisdiction.
Our District’s core priorities are 1) protecting Americans from terrorism and other threats to national security, both at home and abroad; 2) protecting Americans from violent crime; 3) protecting Americans from financial fraud that devastates consumers, siphons taxpayer dollars, weakens our markets, and impedes our ongoing economic recovery; and 4) protecting the most vulnerable among us and all those who cannot speak out or stand up for themselves.
Through our Criminal Division, the District prosecutes violations of federal criminal statutes,from acts of terrorism, public corruption, gang and violent crime, drug distribution conspiracies,internet-related crimes, to many other various criminal acts. Through our Civil Division, the District represents the United States in civil lawsuits by and against the United States and in actions to collect judgments and restitution on behalf of victims and taxpayers. Assistant United States Attorneys in our District serve out of dedication to the principles of strong law enforcement, effective civil representation of the United States government, and the desire to make a difference in our country through service to its citizens.
The United States Attorney’s Office is also dedicated to make our communities safer. We partner with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, as well as community partners, to reduce crime through enforcement, prevention, and community outreach.
