Community Outreach is a fundamental part of the Department of Justice’s comprehensive approach to fighting crime and protecting and defending the rights and interests of the residents of the District of Puerto Rico. Community Outreach takes many different forms, ranging from Department of Justice driven programs and grants, to public efforts such as community meetings, listening tours, and training and education, both formal and informal.
In all of these efforts, the United States Attorney’s goal is to listen, to learn, and to educate, in order to better achieve the overall mission of the office.
