Pierce County established a drug court, the Juvenile Division began to recover from an increase in juvenile violence, the Misdemeanor Division began operating a Domestic Violence Trial Team, and efforts were made to reduce court caseloads. Expenditures by the OPA for 1994 are tabulated, and functions and activities of OPA's civil and criminal divisions are described.
