Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office is seeking a Grand Jury Court Reporter 

OPDA is on a mission to increase safety in New Orleans by holding violent offenders accountable for their criminal acts.

One of the strategies employed by District Attorney Williams in this fight has been to utilize the Orleans Parish Grand Jury to issue indictments for the most serious crimes affecting our neighborhoods. OPDA has done so by both increasing the frequency at which prosecutors convene the Regular Grand Jury, and adding a Special Grand Jury. Together, these Grand Juries meet approximately once or twice per week (on Wednesdays and Thursdays), with breaks for holidays.

OPDA is now seeking an in-house team member to report and transcribe these recurring Grand Jury proceedings.
