“Public safety requires prevention and intervention to be truly effective.”

Our Mission Statement

I am proud to serve you as Worcester County District Attorney, and I am dedicated to our office’s twin missions – seeking justice through tough and fair prosecutions, and preventing crime with a variety of community-based outreach programs. Both goals are equally important.

Our staff of assistant district attorneys, victim-witness advocates, State Police investigators and others is committed to serving the people of Worcester County and keeping our communities safe and secure.

We feel that we can better serve our citizens by preventing a crime rather than prosecuting one, which is why we devote much of our resources to progressive community outreach programs. We know that early intervention is also critical, so we assign our best and brightest attorneys to Worcester Juvenile Court where they work with Probation and the court to help.
