The primary role of the District Attorney is to serve as the chief law enforcement officer for the 27 cities and towns in Norfolk County. District Attorney Morrissey's crime prevention efforts target our most vulnerable populations: children, the disabled and seniors. His initiatives focus on the problems that can cause crime: alcohol and substance abuse, mental health issues and unhealthy relationships. 


Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey is joined by Mr. and Mrs. William Elliott, ABCC Chief Investigator Ted Mahoney, Patriots Senior Vice President Jim Nolan and law enforcement leaders from across Norfolk County to endorse the Norfolk County HERO program.

Licensed liquor establishments are asked to participate in the
program by encouraging their patrons to select a designated driver,
or HERO to avoid the tragedy experienced by Mr. and Mrs. Elliott.
Their son, Naval Ensign John R. Elliott, was killed by a drunk driver. They have dedicated their lives to this cause in their son’s memory. 
Norfolk County is the first in New England to form this
prevention partnership.
