Zachary A. Myers has served as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana since November 15, 2021. Myers was nominated by President Joseph R. Biden and was unanimously confirmed by the Senate.

As the U.S. Attorney, Myers leads an office of approximately over 100 Assistant United States Attorneys and support professionals who litigate matters involving federal criminal offenses, civil litigation and the promotion of public safety and civil rights throughout the district. The Southern District of Indiana is comprised of the southern sixty counties in the state. The U.S. Attorney’s Office is based in Indianapolis, with a staffed office in Evansville, and unstaffed satellite offices in Terre Haute and New Albany.

U.S. Attorney Myers crafted the Office’s Strategic Plan, focusing the office’s resources on addressing gun violence, trafficking of fentanyl and other deadly drugs, protecting and promoting civil rights, as well as complex crimes including human trafficking, cybercrime, child exploitation, economic crimes, and public corruption.
