In the daily administration of a prosecutor’s office, large or small, our duties bring us face to face with individuals enveloped by crisis, chaos, and/or one or more negative emotions. Those individuals, a person close to them or perhaps their businesses, may be victims or facing charges.

They may be under investigation or appearing, perhaps reluctantly, as witnesses with information about a criminal offense.

The mission of prosecutors and staff is to deliver justice, a sense of security, and closure to what can be traumatic events. Unfortunately, involvement in the criminal justice system itself can have a negative impact, because the system is foreign to most people and interrupts their daily lives.
