District Attorney Jackie Lacey has spent most of her professional life as a prosecutor, manager and executive in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

On Dec. 3, 2012, she was sworn in as District Attorney.  Ms. Lacey oversees roughly 1,000 lawyers, nearly 300 investigators and about 800 support staff employees.  She is the first woman and first African-American to serve as Los Angeles County District Attorney since the office was created in 1850.

A Los Angeles native and graduate of the University of Southern California Law School, Ms. Lacey joined the largest local prosecutorial office in the nation in 1986 as a deputy district attorney.  She worked her way through the ranks as a front-line prosecutor.
