DA Margaret Moore getting updated on the serial bomber investigation along with local, state, and federal officials

The mission of the Special Prosecutions Division is to investigate public corruption, white collar fraud, environmental crimes, insurance/workers’ compensation fraud, criminal enterprise and racketeering cases, and other non-violent criminal offenses. Assistant District Attorneys and investigators assigned to this division pursue cases generally involving violations of specialized criminal and civil statutes targeting profit-motivated crime. The division focuses on optimizing the recovery of misappropriated private and public funds and the prosecution of public corruption cases.

Additionally, the division files and prosecutes civil asset forfeiture cases, which in 2018 included $1,296,722.00 petitioned to be forfeited and $411,354.98 in final judgments of forfeiture. In 2018, the Division consisted of 27 staff members. The division is divided into four units: White Collar Crime Unit, Public Integrity Unit, and Workers’ Compensation Fraud Unit.

The Special Prosecutions Division is also tasked with ad hoc assignments of particular importance to the office. In March 2018, prosecutors with the Special Prosecutions Division assisted law enforcement agencies from the local, state, and federal level with the investigation of the serial bomber who terrorized local residents for several weeks.
