  Office of the District Attorney  

The Office of the District Attorney over the years has provided exceptional service to the citizens of our communities. As the region has changed, so has this office. The "DA's Office" is no longer a modest band of prosecutors with the assistance of supporting personnel going to criminal court day after day. We've grown from a small office to our current multi-faceted organization of over 200 people including 65 attorneys. Our recent experiences place this office amongst the best District Attorney offices in the State of California. We are not merely prosecutors; we are the leaders in advancing law enforcement and prosecutorial techniques, programs, and networking; we are innovators in community protection and victim advocacy; and we are educators of the community at large regarding crime issues, justice and crime prevention.

Throughout the year, this office and its staff, lead, teach, participate and represent this community in a variety of contexts throughout California and reaching across the nation. From white collar crime forums to senior citizen events to farm bureau presentations to the high school mock trial competition, the Office of the District Attorney is engaged and committed to this County.

The Office of the District Attorney is organized into three branches under District Attorney Tim Ward and Chief Deputy District Attorney Daniel Underwood:

Bureau of Prosecutions headed by Assistant District Attorney Robert Dempsie
Bureau of Prosecutions headed by Assistant District Attorney David Alavezos
Bureau of Investigations headed by Chief Investigator Lindy Gligorijevic

Each bureau encompasses multiple divisions with multi-faceted areas of responsibilities and attributes reflective of dynamic changes and challenges facing our communities.
