In 1987, the Northern Manhattan Office was created to provide the residents north of 96th Street with easy access to the resources of the District Attorney’s Office. It also provides domestic violence coordinators at the Northern Manhattan Office are a safe and supportive setting in which to meet with victims. Should criminal prosecution be necessary, victims will speak to an Assistant District Attorney. The coordinators will also provide referrals to services for domestic violence victims within the community. By addressing problems relating to domestic violence, criminal trespass, drugs, elder abuse, and fraud, the Northern Manhattan Office has become a vital link between community residents and law enforcement officials. Its staff is here to help you, and we welcome children in the Office.
The Unit provides assistance to block associations, tenant groups, and other organizations seeking to solve neighborhood crime problems, such as drugs and criminal trespassing. The Unit also offers educational programs for individuals, schools and organizations that want to learn more about the criminal justice system.
Residents can write, call, or visit this office to make a complaint about matters that may be criminal in nature, such as fraud and elder abuse. All complaints are confidential, and we welcome walk-ins.
The Unit provides a variety of social services, counseling services, and court-related services designed to meet the needs of crime victims and witnesses who have cases in the District Attorney’s Office.
