Meet DA Nancy E. O'Malley


The Alameda County DA's Office is concerned for the safety of all of our community members.

As part of our commitment to public safety, we are dedicated to sharing information about gun safety.

In June 2017, the DA's Office partnered with the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the American Academy of Pediatrics in the ASK (Asking Saves Kids) Gun Safety Campaign. The ASK Campaign helps raise awareness of the issue of children and adults being put at risk for serious injury or death from unsecured guns.

Just as parents ask all sorts of questions before their children visit other homes (such about pets, internet access, and pools), the ASK campaign encourages parents to add one more question to this conversation: “Is there an unlocked gun in your house?”.

It’s a simple question, but one that has the power to save a child’s life.
