County government provides extensive support for each of Maine's elected District Attorneys. This support includes facilities, staff, staff equipment and witness fees.
The District Attorney's Office is committed to serving the citizens of Lincoln County, it's law enforcement officers and the courts. The staff works hard to ensure the safety of the community by combating child abuse and other crimes of violence, while still giving appropriate focus to the many property crimes which undermine the sense of security of every citizen.
In light of this, the District Attorney's office continues to prosecute numerous crimes of domestic violence and child abuse as well as many crimes linked to drug and alcohol abuse. It is hoped that through prosecution and various programs, the high percentage of crimes attributed to the use of intoxicants, underage drinking and drug use can be reduced, thus ultimately protecting the citizens of Lincoln County.
It should be noted that among the programs that benefit the citizens is the Victim Witnesses Advocates. These Advocates work as a part of the court system to provide support to those victims of crime that face anxiety and lack understanding of the process.
