Welcome to the Westchester County District Attorney's office.
Westchester is one of 29 counties in four states that make up the New York City Metropolitan Area. Its unique character marries the more rural parts of the northern part of the County with the more urban and suburban areas nearer to New York City. Nearly one million people live in six cities, 15 towns and 22 villages that make up Westchester County.
Over the last generation, Westchester has maintained its enviable reputation of a vibrant, desirable bedroom community - while becoming a diverse microcosm of the entire region. It is imperative for law enforcement - to be aware of and sensitive to - the specific needs of individual communities - from populated and urban areas such as Yonkers to the bucolic and suburban sections of the County like Pound Ridge.
