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 we continue to celebrate Juneteenth, RCDA staff joined SI Community Alliance today for their 4th Annual Freedom Festival, marking a day of pride, community and history. Let this day remind us to never take liberty and equality for granted.

Our office was honored to attend @StatenIslandDA 's unveiling of the "We Remember: A Staten Island Gun Violence Memorial" exhibit at the Staten Island Museum. This powerful exhibit keeps the memories of those we've lost alive and serves as a commitment to a better future.

Proud to stand with my office on the steps of Borough Hall to commemorate Gun Violence Awareness Month!

This month & every month, we remain committed to ending the scourge of gun violence & will continue to enforce a zero tolerance policy for those who use illegal weapons on SI!

My office never pleas down a hate crime, period. I am proud to join my colleagues in condemning recent antisemitic incidents and reaffirming zero tolerance for hatred of any kind.

CPU join the @snpnyc for a frank conversation & presentation about the dangers of fentanyl today to students at @MAELS63. Thank you Principal Elfassy & staff for the opportunity to remind our young people that one pill can indeed kill. Together, we CAN make a difference.

It was my distinct pleasure to posthumously celebrate the life of Det. Scott Lovendahl alongside his family, his @nypd comrades, & his Stobe Ave. neighbors at today’s street co-naming in his honor. Scott meant so much to so many. May his commitment of service never be forgotten.

Today, my office was honored to attend Mayor Adams’ Retail Theft Task Force meeting alongside our partners in NYPD as well as retail stakeholders, for a discussion on new legislation, strategies to combat retail theft recidivism & our shared commitment to protecting public safety

Warm wishes to all those celebrating Eid today. May this special occasion bring peace, joy and prosperity to you and your loved ones.

Happy Eid al-Adha!
