The mission of the Placer County's District Attorney's office is to preserve public safety, enhance the quality of life in the county, prosecute criminals, assist victims and survivors and protect the health and well-being of all citizens.
To carry out this mission the Placer County District Attorney's Office has established a team with trained staff dedicated to supporting elder victims and prosecuting criminals who take advantage of our elderly citizens.
To ensure the safety and protection of the county’s senior citizens, the Placer County District Attorney’s office established Placer County PROTECT, a multi-disciplinary task force team dedicated to elder abuse investigations, victim support and community awareness. PROTECT stands for providing resources and outreach to elderly citizens together. This team is composed of the District Attorney’s Office, victim services, adult protective services, local law enforcement agencies, nonprofit organizations and community representatives.
