The Tennessee District Attorneys
The Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference was created by the General Assembly in 1961 to provide for a more prompt and efficient administration of justice in the courts of this state. The Conference is composed of both the District Attorneys General from the state’s 31 judicial districts and this office – the office of the Executive Director. Our primary job is to equip, support and advocate for the District Attorneys General as they work to administer justice and serve their communities.
We accomplish this by managing the fiscal, personnel, property management, IT, training and specialized prosecution needs of their offices. Further, our office serves as the liaison between the District Attorneys General and other governmental agencies, including the courts, the General Assembly, the executive branch, and the Office of the Attorney General and Reporter.
