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.

As part of our initiative to improve quality of life on Staten Island, my office was proud to work with the Richmondtown & Clarke Ave Civic Assn. to remove graffiti on Amboy Rd & Clarke Ave with Where to Turn this week.

My office was delighted to join Fr. Vincent Capodanno Catholic Academy and SI’s veterans for their Annual Memorial Day Ice Cream Social this morning! Thank you to our veterans for their years of service and sacrifice to our country. 🇺🇸

Hundreds of Staten Islanders came together at our 2nd Annual Multicultural Food Festival to celebrate our borough's diversity! Many thanks to the SI Hate Crimes Task Force, participating restaurants & organizations, Sacred Heart & many others who contributed & supported. #SILOVE

Today, my office joined @SIBPVito, @JoeBorelliNYC & the family of US Air Force Captain Ted Cohen to honor our hometown hero with a street co-naming dedication in his memory. May this street serve as a lasting tribute to his legacy & inspire future generations for years to come!

It is with great honor that we recognize Sylvia Moody D'Alessandro for her dedication to preserving the history of Sandy Ground, one of the oldest free Black settlements in the nation. What the oyster was to the people of Staten Island, Sylvia is indeed the pearl of that oyster!

Ettore Mazzei preyed on countless people with addiction illness, subjecting them to drug dealing & extortion all in furtherance of his criminal enterprise. My office & the NYPD are proud to have dismantled this drug ring & look forward to prosecuting this case in the weeks ahead!

A lifelong Staten Islander & staple of the Iron Hills Civic, Charles LaGanga was a tireless champion & advocate for our borough.

I was honored to join his family & loved ones on Sunday for a street co-naming ceremony, forever renaming Flagg Place & Todt Hill Road in his honor!

Strong partnerships start with cooperation and collaboration, just as we do with our partner, @StatenIslandDA. Working closely w/ @NYPDCommAffairs, we removed over 80 firearms.

Our newest FTU officers were a big part of getting the word out and connecting w/ the community.

Thanks to the Richmond County Yacht Club for inviting me to join in their opening day ceremony this past Saturday & for providing our local boating community with a fun & safe environment to enjoy friends, family, & the high seas for over a century!
