The New York County District Attorney's Office is charged with the responsibility of prosecuting crime in the County of New York (Manhattan). Guided by the belief that the public prosecutor's function is to do justice, our office has been recognized as a model for other public prosecutors' offices throughout the nation.
Each year the office investigates and prosecutes over 100,000 criminal cases. The Office is organized into three main areas of responsibilty: The Trial Division, the Investigation Division, and the Appeals Division; the Office also supports the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor.
The Trial Division, consisting of six vertically integrated trial bureaus, has principle responsibility for the prosecution of street crime. The Investigation Division is comprised of three bureaus and several specialized units that are responsible for complex long-term white-collar cases. The Office has a separate Appeals Division to handle the appeals in cases generated by all divisions.
