The Special Prosecutions Division (SPD) investigates and prosecutes cases of domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse, sex crimes and human trafficking. The Division is comprised of the Domestic Violence Bureau, the Child and Elder Abuse Bureau, the Sex Crimes Bureau, and the Victims’ Justice Center, which assists our prosecutors to support victims of crime.

Child abuse cases involve victims under the age of 16 and elder abuse cases are focused on victims older than 60, who have been physically victimized or harmed.

Specially-trained staff are on site to assist and support victims including domestic violence aides, trauma therapists and child welfare professionals. Language assistance is available.

Victims or witnesses of elder abuse can contact our Special Prosecutions Division at (914) 995-3000.
