What We Do

The Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney (OCA) prosecutes all misdemeanor and felony crimes and delinquency matters committed under the Code of Virginia within Fairfax County. The OCA is committed to promoting the long-term safety of the community while reforming Fairfax County’s justice system to make it more equitable.


On January 17th, 2024, the Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney updated our Red Flag Data Dashboard, which tracks open cases in real time and helps raise awareness for Red Flag Laws in our community. Our most recent update adds an all-new view, Substantial Risk Order Hearing Outcomes, where our community can track trends in SRO hearing decisions.
