District Attorneys (DAs) wield significant power to influence the criminal legal system. The ACLU of Northern California sent a California Public Records Act request to the 15 largest district attorney’s offices in the state of California, including the Los Angeles District Attorney’s (L.A. DA) Office. This report was informed by the data and documents provided in response to the PRA, as well as interviews with public defenders, criminal legal system activists, and experts who are criminal legal system-impacted. This report highlights opportunities for the L.A. DA’s office to reduce incarceration and the harms caused by contact with the criminal legal system.
