During her historic first six months in office, District Attorney Pamela Price has hired 80 diverse individuals, including attorneys, victim/witness advocates and paraprofessionals.

Inspectors investigate and prepare cases for criminal and civil trials in conjunction with Deputy District Attorneys. Inspectors also assist with locating and interviewing victims, witnesses and other possible sources of information in preparation for trial.  

They are the largest and most diverse class of promotees in the modern history of the DA’s office. DA Price swore the newly promoted team in on July 7, 2023. Collectively, the inspectors have nearly 60 years of experience working for the Alameda County DA’s office. They are all seasoned law enforcement officers. 

The District Attorney’s Inspector Division was created in 1925 by former Alameda County District Attorney Earl Warren in his early years in the office. Warren started the Inspector’s Division with two detectives, and expanded it to a total of five shortly thereafter. The Inspector’s Division in the DA’s office today includes 75 Inspectors. 

This success coincides with the hiring of 80 new staff members since the beginning of DA Price’s new administration. Among those hired over the last six months are: 24 paraprofessionals, 23 attorneys, 15 victim-witness advocates and 12 law clerks.
