The United States Attorney's Office is a prosecutorial agency primarily dedicated to enforcing federal laws and representing the United States of America in court proceedings. While the United States Attorney's Office assists federal agencies with investigative functions, the Office is not an investigative agency.

Accordingly, citizen concerns and complaints not related to a publicly filed matter currently pending in the United States Attorney's Office should be referred directly to the appropriate investigating agency. Listed below are the more common investigative issues with links to the appropriate agency information.

The Central District of California comprises seven counties - Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. If your concern is outside those counties, please contact the appropriate office in that jurisdiction.
