The Nebraska County Attorneys Association advocates for public policies that strengthen county attorneys’ ability to secure justice for crime victims and serve as legal counsel to their county.

We provide continuing legal education programs, service, support and resources to the county attorneys and staff to enhance and improve the quality of all prosecution throughout the State and facilitate access to best practices in law enforcement and public safety.
