The City Prosecutor’s office understands that a professional and committed corps of prosecutors ready to aggressively prosecute is a component of the contract that it makes with every citizen and community under its jurisdiction. The City Prosecutor’s office understands that its role as a public servant demands the highest levels of integrity, commitment, and responsibility. “To Serve and Restore” our communities are the twin objectives of the office.
