Welcome from District Attorney Katayoun M. Copeland
As the chief law enforcement officer for Delaware County, the safety of our community is my number one priority. I am committed to seeking justice and providing the highest standard of legal representation for the public and victims of crime. It is the duty of this office to represent the Commonwealth with integrity and professionalism, while protecting victims and their rights… all in the pursuit of justice. Our goal is to keep Delaware County safe and secure by collaborating with law enforcement throughout the community and taking a proactive approach to crime. We provide assistance to victims of crime and offer community-based crime prevention programs to educate the public. The daily functions of the District Attorney's Office demands the full time teamwork of dedicated professionals consisting of attorneys, detectives, victim advocates, forensic analysts and our administrative staff. Our team handles thousands of cases each year. We are also involved in juvenile delinquency matters, appeals, victim advocacy, and criminal investigations. We work to be proactive and have various educational programs including senior crime prevention through our senior exploitation unit and educating youth about the dangers of opioids through our Heroin Task Force. I encourage you to take a moment and browse through our website to learn about the services provided by the District Attorney’s Office and the criminal justice system.
