The Criminal Division prosecutes criminal misdemeanors and infractions committed within the City limits. The Criminal Division is divided into five units:

General Criminal Resources - a list of crime victim resources or a network of victim advocates and organizations.

The Community Justice Division prosecutes cases that the community has identified as important to quality of life. Prosecutors work with the community, police and other law enforcement agencies to establish and maintain security, fair business dealing and to promote justice. The Division also manages the Community Justice Initiative and collaborative courts program.
