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.
