Special Prosecutions Unit

The Special Prosecutions Unit (SPU) handles multi-jurisdictional matters, as well as special investigations which may be referred by other state agencies or the governor. Prosecutions also include some situations in which the office has original jurisdiction to include certain environmental violations, tax evasion, election fraud, and other types of fraud. Also within this Unit is the Homicide Assistance Team. Upon the request of a local District Attorney or law enforcement agency, this specialized team provides both investigative and prosecutorial support in active and cold homicide cases throughout the state as well as providing expertise and litigation support on other complex felony cases.
