Community And Outreach Initiatives

The U.S. Attorney's Office takes a proactive approach to crime and drug prevention throughout the district. The office has adopted a number of strategies to carry out the Office's mission of making Northern Texas communities a safer place to work and live.

Anti-Semistism Outreach

Anti-Semitism Outreach 

On July 15, 2019, the Department of Justice hosted a Summit on Combating Anti-Semitism with opening remarks by Attorney General Barr. This is just one way that the Department of Justice and the Northern District of Texas are combatting Anti-Semitism. If you have been a victim of anti-Semitism, please contact Nicole Dana, our Hate Crimes and Civil Rights Coordinator at (214)-659-8600.

Our office works strenuously to protect Texas kids by aggressively prosecuting Internet (and other) child predators and by educating kids, parents, and others about better avoiding such dangers on the Internet.

The Victim-Witness Program was developed to ensure that crime victims in this district are informed of their rights and to assist crime victims throughout the criminal court process. This office is committed to ensuring that victims and witnesses of federal crimes are treated fairly, their privacy is respected and they are treated with dignity and respect.
