How We Contribute to Hidalgo County

Our mission is to represent the State of Texas in Hidalgo County in all criminal cases. “Not to convict, but to see that justice is done. We shall not suppress facts or secrete witnesses capable of establishing the innocence of the accused.” (Article 2.01 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure)

In carrying out our mission we will:

  • Recruit and retain career-minded professionals.
  • Improve quality and productivity through training and technology.
  • Provide maximum communication with and assistance to victims of crime.
  • Work with federal, state, and local law enforcement to ensure the highest quality of criminal justice.
