Community Outreach

The District Attorney’s Office seeks to create opportunities to connect with those who live and work in Adams and Broomfield Counties through various community-based initiatives and programs.

This work outside of the courtroom helps to build a stronger relationship with the community at large. It allows individuals to formulate a positive and proactive relationship with the office and its staff. 

Throughout the tenure of elected District Attorney Brian Mason, the District Attorney’s Office will offer opportunities for individuals to volunteer and to learn about community-based efforts that the DA’s Office is leading. Our office will provide people such as the elderly, school-aged children, and those at risk with the tools and information they need to lead safe and productive lives in our community. The District Attorney’s Office will also offer opportunities for individuals to learn about the inner workings of the criminal justice system to stay informed and up to date on what is happening in our office and the system as a whole.

DA Academy

The District Attorney’s Office will host its DA Academy for those in our community who maintain a desire to understand the work of prosecutors, the District Attorney’s Office, and its staff. Participants will better understand the operations of County Court, District Court, Juvenile Court, crime scene investigations, homicide cases, the Coroner’s Office, and the investigation of officer-involved shootings. The program will conclude with a mock trial comprised of academy participants. 


DA's Office/Quist Middle School Art Collaboration

The District Attorney's Office and the students and staff at Rodger Quist Middle School in Thornton teamed up to create an art collaboration during the 2021/2022 school year. The project spanned several months and DA's Office staff would visit the school weekly to work on the project with the students. It culminated with an official unveililng at the District Attorney's Office attended by nearly 100 people. The art project then moved to the Adams County Government Center where it was on display for the community to enjoy. The project was a therapeutic outlet for students and staff at the DA's Office, and the plan is to continue it for years to come!

Community Events

You can expect to see members of the District Attorney’s Office at various community events in Adams and Broomfield Counties throughout the year. It is the mission of our Community Outreach Program to provide our residents with as many opportunities as possible to connect with our office and its staff. To that end, we will set up tables at various fairs and festivals in our jurisdiction so we can interact with you. Pamphlets, handouts, and other informational materials will also be distributed to those who are interested.
