Welcome to the website of the Massachusetts District Attorneys Association, an independent agency within the executive branch of Massachusetts state government.  The MDAA’s mission is to support the Commonwealth’s eleven elected District Attorneys in promoting public safety, the fair and effective administration of justice, the education of prosecutors and the safeguarding of victims’ rights.

The District Attorneys oversee a combined staff of 1500 employees who work from 115 office locations across the Commonwealth.  The MDAA provides cost-effective support to the District Attorneys by centrally managing statewide business technology initiatives; running a federally-funded training program for prosecutors, victim-witness advocates and fellow public safety professionals, and providing information on the District Attorneys’ budgetary, criminal justice and public safety priorities to the executive and legislative branches.
