Support of Law Enforcement

RALEIGH - The United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina, Robert J. Higdon, Jr., stands in support of law enforcement during the COVID-19 pandemic and has stated:

“As the country grapples with the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and as daily activities are altered or discontinued, we know that your work remains unchanged.  If anything, your efforts to deal with violent crime, drug trafficking and scams against our citizens will become more intense.”

“I want you to know that the men and women of the United States Attorney’s Office here in the Eastern District remain on duty and fully able to partner with you as you enforce federal criminal laws and work to keep all of Eastern North Carolina safe and secure.  We will continue to work alongside you and to proudly stand with you in the federal courts all across this District.  Our commitment to you, and to the mission we share, is unaffected by the health challenges the country faces.  And, we renew our commitment to work with you to “Take Back North Carolina” from the criminals and wrong doers who would victimize our communities.”
