Service Description: DPA is an independent agency operating a public defender program in all 120 Kentucky counties, and is located within the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet. DPA represents over 100,000 citizens each year in Kentucky's trial and appellate courts. The staff of Kentucky's statewide defender program protects what we value most - our liberty and our life. Every day in Kentucky's 120 counties our defenders, supported by our staff of legal secretaries, investigators, paralegals, mitigation specialists, social workers and administrators, stand up for citizens who are accused by the state of having committed a crime. Defenders insure the criminal justice process is fair, the result reached by jurors and judges is just, and that individual liberties are protected.
