Resources for the Community
Keeping the people of Cuyahoga County safe on the streets and in their homes and businesses and standing up for them when they have been the victims of crimes are the top priorities for the Prosecutor’s Office.
Those tasks can take many forms, from educating parents on Internet safety, to advocating for victims of crime, reviewing innocence claims for convicted felons, attending community meetings and events, and reviewing requests to seal criminal records.

It is the policy of the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office that

trustees for the people.
