Most states have several District Attorney offices that prosecute crimes against the state within their district (usually one or more counties). They sometimes go by different names, such as "State's Attorneys" or "County Attorneys" and often are referred to as "prosecutors." Even if you've been arrested and processed for a crime, you're not charged until the D.A.'s office formally files charges.
It's not common for criminal defendants to contact the D.A.'s office on their own accord, as it's best to work with an attorney when your case warrants such contact. There may be times where you'll want to discuss plea bargain options or other details, but you want to be careful not to reveal your defense strategy to prosecutors.
