Name: Tiffany Escover
Job title: Deputy District Attorney
How long you have worked in the DA’s office: 3 ½ years
If someone doesn’t know you and asks what you do for work on a day-to-day basis, you’d describe it by saying the following:
I currently work on the misdemeanor unit where we have a high volume of cases. My typical workdays involve reviewing police reports to determine whether criminal charges are appropriate, attending court proceedings, and negotiating appropriate resolutions to existing cases. In instances where an agreement cannot be reached, I proceed to litigate the case in a trial setting.
How your work makes county residents safer:
A significant portion of my work is focused on impaired driving prosecution – a crime that has devastating effects on our community. Within this role, I offer guidance to law enforcement on the identification and proper investigation of impaired driving incidents, aiming to enhance the safety of our streets.
The accomplishment by you that you’re most proud of since working in the DA’s office:
In my role as the DUII Court Prosecutor, I have the opportunity to observe participants as they navigate through treatment and chart their path to recovery. Witnessing individuals liberate themselves from the clutches of addiction and regain control over their lives is remarkable, and I take great pride in being a contributing member of this transformative process.
