About the District of Rhode Island

Welcome!  Thank you for visiting the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Rhode Island.  While we have come a long way since July 3, 1790, when the Senate confirmed President George Washington’s appointment of the first United States Attorney in the newly-admitted state of Rhode Island, our basic mission endures: to seek justice on behalf of every citizen of our state, by impartially enforcing federal law to protect the public safety and the public interest.

This website offers a guide to who we are and the work we do in the service of the people of Rhode Island, as well as information about the United States Department of Justice, it’s initiatives and programs, answers to frequently asked questions, and links to contact us and other law enforcement agencies.  We hope you find it helpful.
