What is a District Attorney?

The District Attorney is the highest-ranking law enforcement official in the county and represents the people in the prosecution of all criminal offenses. Elected by the voters, the DA’s duty is to see that justice is served and county resources are used responsibly, not merely to seek convictions.

The Harris County District Attorney oversees a staff of approximately 600 prosecutors and support staff and has a budget of more than $68 million dollars a year.  The Harris County DA is the leader in public safety policy, impacting the expenditure of nearly $2.4 billion in tax dollars spent by law enforcement and the courts.

Kim Ogg's career as a lifelong lawyer and crime victim's advocate makes her the best choice for this position. Under her leadership, the DA's office will shift policing practices in Harris County toward keeping citizens safer from violence and theft.

    I had the Harris County DA help me out tremendously and am forever grateful. I had a robbery at my house. My purebred puppy was the most precious thing that was taken. They met with me to collect all the information and evidence I had to help finish this case. She and the Harris county police helped me get sweet Casey back. Forever grateful for Kim Ogg and other DA’s and all they do. Now I get to create memories with Casey everyday watching her grow. It’s been amazing.
