Crimes of Violence

The top priority of the District Attorney’s Office is to take violent criminals off the street and seek justice for their victims. Prosecutors assigned to specialized units and regional offices throughout the county work daily to achieve those goals and make our communities safer.

The crimes listed on the left are vertically prosecuted by specially trained Deputy District Attorneys who handle the cases from beginning to end. This ensures that dangerous criminals and their victims receive the attention they deserve.

In 2001, the District Attorney’s Victim Impact Program doubled the number of highly trained and qualified deputy district attorneys in Branch and Area offices across the county who vertically prosecute elder abuse cases, hate crimes, sexual crimes, stalking cases, and family violence. Law enforcement investigators file these cases directly with VIP coordinators and work with prosecutors who handle the case from start to finish.
