|The Special Investigations Division includes more than 40 employees and
combines the expertise of prosecutors and investigators, often in
cooperation with multi-agency task forces, to prepare and prosecute
certain criminal cases.
Police and citizens regularly contact the County Prosecutor’s Office
with requests for assistance and concerns about investigations
pertaining to economic crime, organized crime and other matters handled
by the Division. Police agencies also request reviews of internal affair
matters that may be criminal in nature.
Often, an assistant prosecuting attorney works a special investigations
case from the very beginning through its conclusion. He or she is
assigned to shepherd the investigation through a final review, present
the case to the Grand Jury, and vertically prosecute through trial. This
continuity increases the likelihood of a successful outcome in the
case. Police benefit from ongoing guidance as to the sufficiency of the
evidence for charging, and prosecutors benefit by knowing the details of
the case prior to the commencement of the prosecution.
When prosecutors work closely with both local police and federal
agencies, they are easily able to share information and resources. This
cooperation allows us to solve and prosecute crimes, preventing future
crimes against our citizens.
