The Harris County District Attorney’s Office continues to perform key functions in the county criminal justice system and has made measures to protect the health of the public and its employees during the coronavirus pandemic.
In the interest of the health and safety of our staff and the community, our offices will remain closed to the public, and most of the agency’s prosecutors and staff will work remotely, until further notice.
“While urging all members of the public to follow the instructions of elected leaders and health experts for social distancing and other actions to limit the spread to the virus, I am ensuring that some aspects of my staff’s work for the public continue without interruption,” District Attorney Kim Ogg said.
Prosecutors will be at any court setting a judge sets, via video conference, as authorized by the Texas Supreme Court. Until further notice, all prosecutors will now appear remotely for any court appearances.
