Child Protection

The District Attorney's office is deeply committed to keeping our kids safe. We work closely with local, state and federal law enforcement officials to ensure that children in Dauphin County are protected against all types of criminal activity - whether online, in school or at home.

The District Attorney's Office has multi-media based resources to help inform both children and adults about safety issues that impact them and the criminal justice system. They are generally presented by experienced Assistant District Attorneys and County Detectives throughout the year to various community groups, at no cost, upon request.
