WHAT: The Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) is incorporating a new social media policy.

The OCDA researched the law relating to social media, determined the ACLU brought forward a valid point, and today responded with this letter.

WHERE: The new social media policy, titled “OCDA Social Media Terms of Use,” is available at by selecting Reports under the Reports pull-down menu. "Response Letter to the ACLU" is available by selecting Letters under the Reports menu. A link to the policy is also in the “About” section or “Bio” of each OCDA social media platform.
