The U.S. Attorney's Office of the Eastern District of Wisconsin is involved in a number of programs and projects in our community. Some of our major efforts are listed below.


Anti-Terrorism Advisory

Working with federal, state, local, and tribal partners, the Eastern District of Wisconsin Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council (ATAC) fosters awareness, education, and training programs as part of the nation's overall terrorism prevention strategy.


Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee

The Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee sponsors and co-sponsors training seminars for federal, state and local law enforcement agencies addressing a variety of subjects.


Project Safe Childhood

Project Safe Childhood (PSC) is a Department of Justice initiative launched in 2006 that aims to combat the proliferation of technology-facilitated sexual exploitation crimes against children. The threat of sexual predators soliciting children for physical sexual contact is well-known and serious; the danger of perpetrators who produce, distribute, and possess child pornography is equally dramatic and disturbing.


Project Safe Neighborhoods

Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is the U.S. Department of Justice’s initiative to foster partnerships between federal, local, and community agencies to reduce violent gun crime.


Victims of crime may experience feelings of confusion, frustration, fear and anger. The United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin and the Victim/Witness Unit are dedicated to making sure that victims of federal crimes and their family members are treated with compassion, fairness and respect.


Environmental Justice and Public Health

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin is committed to ensuring safe living and working conditions for our entire community.  You can help protect the community from harmful violations of federal law by notifying the U.S. Attorney’s Office or other federal agencies about environmental justice concerns. 


Civil Rights

As the primary federal agencies responsible for investigating allegations of federal civil rights violations, the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office place a high priority on educating the public about civil rights and protecting those rights. The offices have established productive and meaningful relationships with state and local law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, non-governmental organizations, and community and minority groups to improve reporting of civil rights violations, promote the benefits of sharing information and intelligence, and develop proactive strategies for identifying and addressing trends in this field.
