Priority Areas

The Department of Justice (DOJ) expects every U.S. Attorney’s Office to assist in accomplishing the overall strategic goals of the Department; however, each district is also responsible for analyzing its unique needs and making a commitment to its own priority areas. U.S. Attorney Ortiz identified the following as top priorities for the District of MA:

Protect National Security and Counter Violent Extremism
Safeguard Civil Rights of Citizens/Fight Public Corruption
Keep Communities Safe from Violent Crime
Aggressively Pursue Economic Crimes
Combat Health Care Fraud

The U.S. Attorney's Office in the District of Massachusetts views strong partnerships with law enforcement, government agencies and community stakeholders as invaluable. Those partnersips aid the District in developing successful strategies in each of the U.S. Attorney's priority areas.
