In upcoming months prosecutors, defense attorneys and our court system will be adapting to many new laws and procedures. I will advocate for adequate resources for all offices, big and small, to ensure the public safety of New York’s residents and visitors.

DAASNY was formed in 1909 as an organization for prosecutors in the State of New York to provide for the exchange of information and views with respect to the conduct of their offices, the New York State criminal justice system and the criminal law and operation.
DAASNY encourages and fosters communication, cooperation, training and consultation among and on behalf of the district attorneys and their staffs for matters concerning the prosecution of crime in New York State and improving the legal system. It is DAASNY’s collegial approach and the fostering of communication between offices both large and small, upstate and downstate, with a particular emphasis upon ethical issues facing prosecutors, that helps to ensure greater fairness, transparency and accuracy within the criminal justice system.
