Acting U.S. Attorney Talbert welcomes law enforcement executives to the Eastern District’s 2016 Law Enforcement Executive Summit


The United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California represents the federal government in virtually all litigation involving the United States in the Eastern District of California. This includes all criminal prosecutions for violations of federal law, civil lawsuits by and against the government, and actions to collect judgments and restitution on behalf of victims and taxpayers. The Eastern District of California is one of the largest judicial districts in the country, both in terms of population and land mass. It has almost eight million residents and encompasses six large urban areas: Sacramento, Fresno, Bakersfield, Stockton,Vallejo, and Fairfield. It extends over 87,000 square miles, 45% of which is federal land.  It includes 34 counties reaching from the Oregon border in the north down to Bakersfield in the south, and from the coastal mountains in the west, to the Nevada border in the east. (Click here for the California County map of the Eastern District.) The attorneys and staff of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California are proud to represent residents of this large and culturally diverse district. It is the mission and the pledge of this office to represent the United States with determination, professionalism, and integrity.

The U.S. Attorney’s Law Enforcement Executive Summit

Last month, my office hosted the U.S. Attorney’s Law Enforcement Executive Summit in South Lake Tahoe, a two and one-half day program directed at an audience of over 100 police chiefs, sheriffs, and other law enforcement leaders from around the Eastern District of California.  For a variety of reasons, we have not been able to put on such a summit for three years—until this year.  Our office’s Law Enforcement Coordinator, Tim Johnstone, organized a highly informative program covering a variety of issues that are timely and key to effective law enforcement in our district.
