We have two primary responsibilities in the District Attorney's Office: Advise Local Law Enforcement and Prosecute every criminal matter in the territorial jurisdiction of New Hanover and Pender County. There are more than 800 sworn law officers in over 20 different state and federal law enforcement agencies who we work with every day. We employ a police/prosecutor team approach and pro actively work with officers during all of phases of a case. When cases come to trial, we set the calendar and have the burden of proof in all cases from simple traffic offenses to first degree murder. There are more than 70,000 traffic offenses and misdemeanors and over 5,000 felonies calendared each year in the Fifth District. We keep the courts running five days a week.
