The mission of the Fourth Judicial District Attorney’s Office is to administer justice, advocate for victims
and partner with law enforcement and the citizens of this community in the deterrence and prevention of crime.
The 4th Judicial District Attorney is the public prosecutor for the citizens of El Paso and Teller Counties.
Our main function is to enforce the criminal laws of this state. Law enforcement agencies investigate the crime
and the prosecutor decides the resulting charges.
A prosecutor's obligation is to seek justice on behalf of the people.
Restitution for the victim, potential for the defendant to rehabilitate, and the safety of the community are
some of the factors that are considered in making decisions on individual cases.
There are many other responsibilities assigned to the District Attorney under Colorado law.
Our mission is to fulfill these responsibilities, to be the voice of the victim in criminal cases,
and to seek justice in all matters coming to this office.
