Orleans Parish (La.) District Attorney's Office
          Records of the Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Investigative Unit, 1974-1976
        4 cu. ft.


This unit was established in 1974 through a grant from the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Criminal Justice. The unit was designed to work closely with victims and witnesses to sex and child abuse crimes accepted for prosecution by the District Attorney's Office. Two female investigators were hired to staff the unit.

The records deal with the establishment and functioning of the unit. Included are reports required by the grant process along with information on subjects bearing on the unit's responsibilities. The latter group includes material on the functioning of other such units, such as the one in New York City, along with data on other rape programs in New Orleans and Louisiana. There is also some material on the operations of the District Attorney's Office in general.
