The annual budget for the Pima County Government exceeds $1.3 billion. In 2012,
the Pima County Attorney’s portion of that was only 4%. Approximately half of the county’s
budget goes to justice and law enforcement.
The County Attorney receives only 8.1% of the
county's justice and law enforcement budget, compared
with 11.8% for criminal defense attorneys.
The County Attorney’s Office operates with a $30 million budget. Roughly one-third of
this budget comes, not from taxpayer dollars, but from federal, state and local
grants, special revenue funds and assets seized from criminals.
