Several programs in this office bring together professionals within the district charged with providing a coordinated and comprehensive approach which focuses on providing a service to the general public and support to subgroups of the larger community we serve.

From promoting crime prevention initiatives and public safety programs, coordinating and supporting training and public awareness events to providing services to both victims and lay witnesses, these programs have simultaneously strengthened relationships with federal, state and local law enforcement, the community and other members of the public sector while enhancing the image of the division and the SDTX as a whole.

Those programs include:
