The Financial Crimes Unit handles all of the fraud, economic, and cybercrimes cases in the District Attorney’s Office. It assists law enforcement with the investigation and the successful prosecution of complex financial crimes cases.
This unit is the only specialty division within the District Attorney’s Office to initiate investigations from the public and outside agency referrals. The unit and its staff strive to train and mentor law enforcement agencies to conduct thorough and meaningful economic-related investigations. The division handles the review and filing of charges for all financial-related crime cases.
Financial Crimes' mission is to prosecute complex economic crimes by holding offenders accountable and obtaining maximum restitution for victims. The unit also prosecutes financial crimes perpetrated against the at-risk community.
