WELCOME to the Kalamazoo County, Michigan Prosecuting Attorney's Web Site.
We hope these pages will be of assistance to you in learning about our Office and the criminal justice system.
The Kalamazoo County Prosecuting Attorney's Office has long been recognized as a
state and national leader and innovator in criminal justice. In the
1980's, we pioneered one of the first Prosecutor Victim Advocate Programs in
America. We were among the first to have a Career Criminal program,
computerized management information system, subpoena-by-mail procedure and
Specialized Child Sexual Assault Prosecutor Program. In the decade of the
90's, we continued our innovation in Michigan with the first Domestic
Violence Unit, District Court Witness Coordinator Program, Neighborhood
Prosecutor Program and Computer Technical Trial Assistant Program. Over
the years, the Office and its individual members have received numerous
honors, recognitions and awards.
Today, the Office of Prosecuting Attorney continues to enjoy a reputation
for leadership, innovation and cutting-edge programs designed to hold
criminals strictly accountable, help crime victims and provide effective
and efficient public service. We were honored to have been
selected as one of only five National Mentor Prosecutor Offices in America
by the Jefferson Institute of Washington, DC and the US Justice Department.
We partnered with the Courts and others in the criminal justice system to
create one of the first Drug Treatment Courts in the State, as well as a
Sobriety Court and Mental Health Recovery Court.
The Office is comprised of three divisions/teams:
Circuit Court, District Court, and Family Court. Each division includes
attorneys, victim advocates and support staff who handle the cases in those
specific court areas. Our goal is to continue to provide the highest quality,
yet cost-efficient public service. Most importantly, our goal is to provide justice for the
citizens of Kalamazoo County.
