Message from the Special Narcotics Prosecutor

As Special Narcotics Prosecutor, I am appointed by New York City's five elected District Attorneys. We are committed to partnering with communities in all five boroughs of our vibrant and diverse city in the shared mission of protecting public safety.

I employ a strategic enforcement approach consistent with the goal of maximizing impact while reducing arrests. My office is dedicated to disrupting drug trafficking and related crime at the highest levels and to building strong, healthy communities.

The presence of illegal drugs in neighborhoods has a destabilizing and often devastating impact on the security and well-being of residents. Where there is drug activity, violence often follows. Our efforts can only succeed with the support of the citizens we serve. New Yorkers can help us put drug dealers out of business and prevent them from preying on vulnerable people in our neighborhoods.

My office has been a leader in raising public awareness and offering treatment alternatives to those with substance use disorder more than 20 years. We are dedicated to continuing this important work and drawing on all of our resources to enrich our city.
