Policies and Procedures

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination in the services, programs, and activities of all state and local governments on the basis of disability.  The Act also establishes requirements for making programs accessible to individuals with disabilities and provides equally effective communications for individuals with disabilities.  
 

The Public Defender's policy is to provide free of charge appropriate auxiliary aids and services whenever necessary to ensure that clients with disabilities, and others with disabilities who qualify for the programs, services, and activities of the Public Defender, have an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from such programs, activities, and services.
