Welcome to The District Attorney’s Annual Report for 2016.
Last year, our office was on the front lines of the fight against human trafficking, in prosecuting serious injury and deadly DUI cases, and in reducing violence in our neighborhoods by holding street gangs accountable for their crimes.
As always, we remained committed to crime prevention as well. We opened the Community Action Resource Engagement Center (CARE) in National City, a product of community collaboration aimed at preventing crime and improving the quality of life for residents who live in Southeast San Diego.
Interesting numbers from this year’s report include:
- 12,800 crime victims assisted by our victim advocates
- 11,419 subpoenas served
- 37,645 defendants charged
