Oklahoma District Attorneys Council – 19 O.S. § 215.28
The District Attorneys Training and Coordination Council (DATCC) was created by the Oklahoma Legislature in 1976 to strengthen the criminal justice system in Oklahoma, to provide a professional organization for the education, training and coordination of technical efforts of all state prosecutors, and to maintain and improve prosecutor efficiency and effectiveness in enforcing the laws of this state. At that time, the primary role of the Council was training. In 1982, when all general operations of the district attorney system became state funded, the role of the Council expanded and the Council became responsible for additional financial, personnel, and other administrative duties.
