1 CRIMINAL JUSTICE & COURTS DISTRICT ATTORNEY S OFFICE W. Richard Chiapete, District Attorney Patricia J. Hanson, Deputy District Attorney OPERATING AUTHORITY AND PURPOSE The Wisconsin Constitution in Article VI, Section 4, creates the office of the District Attorney. The purpose of the Office of the District Attorney is delineated in Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 978. Section lists the specific duties of the District Attorney. The District Attorney shall: Prosecute all criminal actions. Prosecute all state forfeiture actions, county traffic actions, and county ordinance violations. Participate in investigatory (John Doe) proceedings. Supervise expenditures of the office. Cooperate with the Department of Workforce Development in welfare fraud investigations. Brief and argue criminal cases brought by appeal. Institute, commence, or appear in civil actions prescribed by statute. Prosecute or defend actions transferred to another county. Establish other prosecutorial units throughout the county necessary to carry out the duties. Hire, employ, and supervise staff and make appropriate assignments. Prepare a biennial State budget request. Supervise, coordinate and implement Victim Witness services pursuant to Chapter 950. EVALUATION OF PERFORMANCE MEASURES Because of the unique duties of this office, no statistical or other evaluation measurements are useful in determining our performance level. Statewide statistics continually demonstrate that this office handles more criminal cases per attorney than almost all other state prosecution units. This office currently has seventeen (17) full-time attorneys and two (2) half-time attorneys. During an average year this office handles approximately 1,500-1,800 felony cases, 4,500-5,500 criminal traffic and misdemeanor cases, juvenile cases, and variety of other cases including, but not limited to; municipal traffic cases, child in need of protection and services cases, termination of parental rights cases, Chapter 980 commitment of sexually violent persons cases, and extraordinary writ cases. A review of County Staff shows that our clerical staff handles more work than comparable counties GOALS AND BUDGET STRATEGIES As always, this office will continue to provide the best service possible for the citizens of Racine County. This office will continue to seek improvement in providing services. Procedures will be continually reviewed to increase efficiency and reduce errors. This office will continue to seek new and innovative ways to electronically communicate with the courts and the local law enforcement agencies. This office is always mindful of the cost of doing business. We will strive to provide the most effective service to the citizens of Racine County within the budget restraints that affect all government offices. PAGE 32-1
