Abducted Children Recovery

Assistance to Victims of Crimes

It is vital that victims and witnesses of crimes are not overlooked. The District Attorney has initiated specific efforts to provide direct assistance to victims and witnesses of crimes.

In addition, the District Attorney's Office also assists and teams with other community agencies who are providing support and assistance to victims in Shasta County.

Computer Crimes Investigations

Shasta County, like all areas, has seen the increasing trend of computers being linked to the commission of crimes. Whether there is evidence of a crime contained in the information stored on a computer, the crime being committed via the Internet using a computer, or the crime involving the illegal access to a computer or computer system, the law enforcement community in Shasta County is obligated to be able to effectively investigate and prosecute those who commit crimes via computer. In response to this issue, the District Attorney has assigned investigators to target computer crimes. The DA Investigators will team with other law enforcement agencies in county wide efforts to work on this issue.
