History of the District Attorneys Council Continued,
Over the years, additional duties have been added to the Council. In 1988, the name of the agency was changed to the District Attorneys Council to reflect these duties. The Council is the administrative agency for the Crime Victims Compensation Board and the state administrator of many federal grants. The two largest are the Justice Assistance Grant and the Victims of Crime Act from the Department of Justice. The Council also determines the appropriate method of allocating funds and positions for the prosecutorial system and administers the District Attorneys Evidence Fund.
The Oklahoma District Attorneys Council is governed by a five member council. The Board consist of the Oklahoma Attorney General or designee, the President of the Oklahoma District Attorneys Association, the President-Elect of the Oklahoma District Attorneys Association, a District Attorney selected by the Oklahoma Bar Association, and a District Attorney selected by the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals.
The Executive Coordinator of the District Attorneys Council is appointed and supervised by the Council. The Executive Coordinator oversees the day-to-day functions of the agency. The District Attorneys Council consists of five departments: Executive, Finance, Federal Grants, Victim Services, and Information Technology.
