Robbery, Assault & Arson Unit

The Robbery, Assault and Arson Unit prosecutes nearly 800 violent criminals each year who prey upon our citizens, merchants and financial institutions. These cases often involve citizens who have been shot, stabbed or otherwise wounded by armed attackers. Advocates in this unit work closely with violent crime victims and witnesses to help reduce the natural anxiety that comes with involvement in the criminal justice system. Understanding and having confidence in the process is an important first step toward achieving justice.
