The PENNSYLVANIA DISTRICT ATTORNEYS ASSOCIATION was formed in 1912 for the purpose of providing uniformity and efficiency in the discharge of duties and functions of Pennsylvania’s 67 District Attorneys and their assistants. The Association today continues to further its purpose through its support of training programs, and by its reporting of legal and legislative developments of importance to Pennsylvania prosecutors and their colleagues within the criminal justice system. Moreover, the Association continues to operate as a vehicle for the effective exchange of information among its approximately 1,000 members which primarily include current District Attorneys and their assistants; former District Attorneys and assistant district attorneys; deputy attorneys general; Assistant US Attorneys; and police chiefs.
