Thank you for visiting the website for the Cape & Islands District Attorney's Office. It has been my distinct pleasure to serve the people of the Cape & Islands as District Attorney since January, 2003. Our Office prosecutes over 15,000 criminal cases every year. The dedicated and professional prosecutors and support staff members who work in this Office are here to serve the public, and seek justice in an aggressive and fair manner on behalf of the victims of crime. We see ourselves as problem-solvers, not merely as case-processors. Again, thank you for visiting our website. If you have any concerns, not addressed here, or need to contact us, please feel free to call at (508) 362-8113 or email Assistant District Attorney Tara Miltimore at
Who we serve
As District Attorney my goal is to ensure community peace and safety through out the Cape and Islands by speedy prosecution of major offenders as well as by expediting the handling of minor criminal matters. In pursuing the reduction of criminal activity, the District Attorney for the Cape & Islands District is assisted by Massachusetts State Police detectives who are assigned to the District Attorney’s Office. The office also works with the police departments within the jurisdiction and encourages cooperative relations among law enforcement agencies at all levels. In pursuing our mission objectives, we continue to emphasize the investigation and prosecution of crime at all levels.
