STREET CRIME

Although Staten Island remains the safest borough in the safest big city in America, we confront burglaries, robberies, gun violence, assault, and other “big-city” crimes each day. Learn what we are doing to keep Staten Islanders safe in their neighborhoods.

ANIMAL CRUELTY

Crimes committed against animals, cruel in their own right, are often predictive crimes that indicate an offender’s likelihood to harm another human. Read more about what we are doing to prosecute those who harm animals & our pets.

VICTIM SERVICES

For those who have been victimized by crime, the criminal justice system can at times feel harsh and unwelcoming. Our Victim Services Unit helps victims through their case by connecting them to resources, providing a safe space, and most of all being there when they need it most.

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

In order to effectively serve the community as a whole, the Community Partnership Unit serves as a critical link between our office and the people of Staten Island.
