Heard and Noted

Thoughts from the Community about the DA's Office and the state of our City in General.

What you do matters, especially when it is inconvenient, when it is not your responsibility, and when you lack the resources necessary to help.
- David Soars, Albany District Attorney

Thank you for putting together the program you shared with our students last month. It really made a positive impression.

-Jane Smithers, Tech Valley High School

What this department has done in recent years is truly remarkable.

-Joseph Robertson, City of Albany Community Development Chair

DA Soares and his team are a shining example of how community justice can really work.

-Marlon Ramirez, Community Board 6

Bureaus

The DA's Office is comprised of sworn and professional personnel divided into nine bureaus.

Appeals and Legal Affairs Unit

The Legal Affairs Unit handles all appellate advocacy for the Office and serves as a legal department and research center for all of the Office's Assistant District Attorneys.


Street Crimes Unit

The Street Crimes Unit investigates and prosecutes individuals and organizations involved in the trafficking of narcotics in Albany County. The Street Crimes Unit investigates street level distribution and conducts long term investigations into suspected criminal narcotics organizations.


Financial Crimes Unit

Every day cases are forwarded to the FCU from law enforcement agencies across the county. While the facts and circumstances of these cases may vary, the common thread for all financial crimes cases is the loss of money to a victim, whether the victim is an individual, a retail store or bank, or even the State of New York.
