Effective enforcement of the law requires the
sure-handed expertise of a knowledgeable prosecutor.
One of the main duties of the county attorney is to
represent the state in criminal cases. The county attorney works
with law enforcement officers in the investigation and
preparation of cases to be heard before the criminal courts.
When requested in writing, the county attorney provides legal
counsel to county officers.
The overwhelming importance of the office of
public prosecutors arises from the fact that the primary
duty of all prosecuting attorneys is not to convict, but to see
that justice is done.
Other duties include prosecution of juvenile
offenders, representation of victims of violence in protective
orders, representing the Texas Department of Protective &
Regulatory services in removing children from abusive
households, and representing the state in mental health hearings.
