It is the primary responsibility of the District Attorney to prosecute individuals who commit crimes. The District Attorney represents the State of Wisconsin and Calumet County in the prosecution of felony, misdemeanor, criminal traffic crimes, juvenile delinquency, and non-criminal traffic and ordinance citations.
The office works directly with law enforcement agencies that serve Calumet County citizens to ensure the effective, efficient and fair enforcement of the law. These agencies include:
- Calumet County Sheriff’s Office
- Appleton Police Department

- Chilton Police Department
- Kiel Police Department
- Menasha Police Department

The District Attorney assists law enforcement agencies by providing training on various aspects of criminal law and procedure. Routinely, law enforcement agencies consult with the District Attorney for legal advice regarding appropriate courses of action in criminal investigations. Referrals made by law enforcement agencies are reviewed and the office determines the appropriate criminal charges to file.
The District Attorney also operates the Victim/Witness Assistance Program which provides support to victims and witnesses of crime. The program provides direct services to crime victims and witnesses by ensuring that they are treated with sensitivity, fairness, dignity, compassion and respect. The Victim/Witness Assistance Program ensures that the rights of victims and witnesses are honored and protected, as outlined in Wisconsin Statutory Chapter 950.
