This section presents information about victimization, victim characteristics, and the District Attorney’s (DA) Office’s engagement with victims, witnesses, and the general community.
Why is this important? Understanding the victim population, providing effective services, and timely engagement helps develop the mutual transparency and trust needed to advance community safety and well-being.
While the data we collect on victim demographics is accurate, it is unfortunately not complete. This makes determining trends impractical. Now that we have identified this issue, we plan to work to improve our demographic collection practices and provide a more complete picture to the community. This applies to all subsequent demographic indicators.
Below are a set of indicators that provide additional context about serving victims. These indicators help the DA's Office ensure they are supporting crime victims with timely outreach, ensuring victims' voices are heard, and preventing future victimization.
