Kansas Attorney General

The Office of the Attorney General is established by the Kansas Constitution. As the state's chief legal officer and top law enforcement official, the Attorney General performs a range of duties as prescribed by state law and legal precedents.

The office is organized into several divisions and units charged with performing these various functions. Among these divisions is the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, the state's premier criminal investigative agency.

We work hard to promote public safety, protect consumers and taxpayers, and provide quality legal services to our state and its agencies. On this website, you can find information about the other services we provide, such as concealed carry licenses and crime victims services.
