Community Prosecution Unit
Overview

The Community Prosecution Unit was established in 1999 to work directly with police officers and community members in targeted areas to develop long-term solutions to quality-of-life crime problems in Saint Paul neighborhoods.

The unit is staffed by a team of three attorneys. Team members attend meetings in the community, staff police precinct offices, conduct outreach and training as well as carry a caseload.


Main Focus
The main focus of the unit is to:
  • Improve quality of life in targeted neighborhoods
  • Build meaningful partnerships to proactively and creatively solve community crime problems
  • Expand the prosecutorial tools to more effectively address neighborhood quality-of-life crime priorities
  • Hold misdemeanor offenders accountable in the criminal justice system and to the community that has been harmed by quality-of-life crimes
  • Educate the public about the criminal justice system
