SANTA ANA — District Attorney Tony Rackauckas will introduce the Vietnamese Outreach Program this weekend at the community Tet Festival in Garden Grove.  The District Attorney’s Government & Community Relations Unit will sponsor a booth on Saturday and Sunday.  District Attorney Tony Rackauckas will be at the booth Saturday, Jan. 27, between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to greet festival goers and answer questions.

The outreach program is designed to enhance public perceptions of the District Attorney’s Office, law enforcement and local government in general.  It educates the public on how to report crimes and cooperate in prosecutions resulting in a safer community.

The District Attorney’s Office will conduct a five-question survey at the booth to assess the needs of the community.  Other activities at the booth will include a prize wheel, free face painting and balloons.  Pamphlets, in Vietnamese and English, on various services available to the community can be picked up at the booth.  Volunteers from police departments, the District Attorney’s Office and the community will be present to answer questions.

The booth (#81) will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the community Tet Festival at Garden Grove Park, 9301 Westminster Blvd. in the city of Garden Grove.  Admission cost is $4 for adult and $2 for children.  For more information, please call the District Attorney’s Government & Community Relations Unit at (714) 347-8410.
