DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Domestic Violence offenses are among the most heinous crimes committed on Staten Island. We have taken an all hands on deck approach to combat these horrific crimes and support those who have been victimized.

STREET CRIME

Although Staten Island remains the safest borough in the safest big city in America, we confront burglaries, robberies, gun violence, assault, and other “big-city” crimes each day. Learn what we are doing to keep Staten Islanders safe in their neighborhoods.

ANIMAL CRUELTY

Crimes committed against animals, cruel in their own right, are often predictive crimes that indicate an offender’s likelihood to harm another human. Read more about what we are doing to prosecute those who harm animals & our pets.

Two Hands Together Victim Services Icon

VICTIM SERVICES

For those who have been victimized by crime, the criminal justice system can at times feel harsh and unwelcoming. Our Victim Services Unit helps victims through their case by connecting them to resources, providing a safe space, and most of all being there when they need it most.

Community Partnerships Icon

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

In order to effectively serve the community as a whole, the Community Partnership Unit serves as a critical link between our office and the people of Staten Island. This Unit works to address existing crime and public safety concerns, educates community members on the issues we are facing, and develops strategies and partnerships to prevent crime in all its forms.

For RESPECT FOR ALL WEEK in DOE schools, CPU was invited to share our antibullying workshop today at P. S. 18. Huge thanks to Principal Robert Rodriguez, @UAU_Inc team, staff and delightfully enthusiastic students for a wonderfully interactive afternoon.
