The District Attorney is responsible for enforcing laws designed to protect consumers and the environment. As such, the District Attorney’s Consumer and Environmental Protection Division has six allocated positions, consisting of three attorneys, one investigator, one paralegal and one legal secretary.
The focus of this division is to enforce civil and criminal laws related to:
Fish and Game
Other Environmental Protection Laws
The unit can enforce against anyone who does business in Napa County including stores, mail order, internet and media advertisers. The unit continues with its collaborative prosecution program both with County Counsel to enforce violations of the Napa County Code and with other district attorney offices in the state to enforce violations of laws relating to deceptive advertising and unfair competition.
