The Ramsey County Attorney's Office protects public safety through aggressive prosecution - but that isn't all we do.
Public safety is caring for children by collecting child support, making sure kids get to school to receive an education, and helping youth who are vulnerable. Public safety is advocating for those - young and old - who have been abused. Public safety happens when we collectively care for all of the people in our community and when we work together for prevention. We strive for better victim safety and greater offender accountability in all we do.
I pledge to you that we will continue to work hard every day to fulfill our mission of serving the residents of Ramsey County by pursuing justice and public safety, protecting the vulnerable, delivering quality legal services and providing leadership to achieve positive outcomes for our community.
On behalf of everyone in the Ramsey County Attorney's Office, thank you for the opportunity to serve you and make our community safer and stronger.
