The Department of Justice is the principal federal agency charged with enforcing federally-protected civil and constitutional rights. The Division's mission comprises two prongs: (1) vigorous enforcement of the criminal laws prohibiting civil rights abuses, including 'color of law' violations by state officers, trafficking in humans, conspiracy to violate federally protected rights, and criminal interference with housing rights; and (2) defending individuals' federal civil rights through a panoply of means including civil litigation, consent orders, settlements, technical assistance, public outreach, and education programs.
The Criminal Section handles matters involving the deprivation of personal liberties which either cannot be, or are not, sufficiently addressed by state or local authorities. These are invariably matters of intense public interest involving acts of racial violence, misconduct by local and federal law enforcement officials, violations of Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) and related involuntary servitude statutes, the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, as well as law which proscribes the interference with religious exercise and the destruction of religious property.
Division offices are near the Metro transportation system or public transportation, and are conveniently accessible to restaurants, museums and other Washington, D.C. area attractions. Most jobs in the Division offer alternative work schedules and other family friendly opportunities. Most employees who commute by public transportation are eligible for a transit subsidy benefit.
