Community Council
Multicultural Community Council's Justice Leadership Award Winners

The mission of the Yolo County’s Multi-Cultural Community Council is to enrich understanding of Yolo County’s diverse population and to celebrate how cultural knowledge expands our ability to appreciate differences.  The Multi-Cultural Community Council is made up of individuals from throughout Yolo County.  The MCCC is led by Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig, along with MCCC Chairperson Carlos Matos.  The MCCC acts as an advisory group to Reisig.  

The awards luncheon is focused on recognizing individuals or organizations who promote multi-cultural relationships, acceptance and peace; forge diverse coalitions to assure ongoing community dialogue related to cultural awareness, the criminal justice system, and public safety; and ensure multi-cultural community participation in educational and informational programs related to accessing, understanding and providing input to the criminal justice system.

Domestic Violence
Awareness Month

The month of October is recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM).  Domestic violence is a serious social problem and dangerous crime that affects millions of individuals across the United States of America regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, or education.

One in four women will be the victim of domestic violence at some point in her lifetime, and, on average, three women are killed every day at the hands of a current or former intimate partner.  Though it is not as common, men are also victimized as a result of domestic violence.

The goal of DVAM is to educate the public to speak out against domestic violence because the issue will continue until society stands up against abusive behavior.  The Yolo County District Attorney's Office will continue to vigorously prosecute domestic violence offenders who commit these life altering crimes, and our Victim Services Division will continue to help domestic violence survivors by providing advocacy, court accompaniment and many other needed services.

***  Fraud Alert ***
Debt Collection Scam Alert
Debt Collector Scam Alert

Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig is warning residents to be wary of fraudulent telephone calls from people posing as debt collection agents. These scammers state that you have a warrant for your arrest issued by a local law enforcement agency because of an unpaid debt from your past. The scammers say that unless the debt is paid immediately, you will be arrested. These so-called debt collection agents sound very official and the scam is very well executed. Concerned Yolo County citizens have recently contacted the District Attorney’s Fraud Unit to report being contacted by these scammers.
