Fighting domestic violence

The Oklahoma District Attorneys Association and Verizon Wireless announce the “District Attorneys Against Domestic Violence” collaboration. Together their efforts will help raise domestic violence awareness in communities across the state. The ODAA is a private organization that exists to foster and maintain the honor and integrity of the prosecuting attorneys and improve and facilitate the administration of justice in the State of Oklahoma. The 27 elected district attorneys are responsible for prosecuting all crimes in their respective districts and as a result, the district attorneys see first-hand the effects of domestic violence on their communities and are together dedicated to strengthening the state’s response to this devastating crime.
