The Nassau County District Attorney’s Community Partnership Program (CPP) is a community-based resource and referral office that provides social services to the general community, with a focus on young people at risk of gang involvement, as well as the re-entry population and other justice-involved individuals. CPP works on the ground in Hempstead, which has been disproportionately affected by gang and gun violence, to promote the District Attorney’s vision of collaborating with community members to reduce recidivism, educate and empower young people and build a safer community. CPP’s staff facilitate gang intervention/prevention groups for parolees, probationers, and young people, and they provide individual case management to address clients’ needs. CPP’s staff also engage in school-based programming designed to help young people make better choices and avoid circumstances that would lead them into danger. CPP’s services are free and available on a walk-in basis to any member of the community, in English and Spanish. Click here to check out CPP’s Instagram page.
The Office of Immigrant Affairs helps Nassau County’s large immigrant or foreign-born population navigate the criminal justice system, encouraging immigrants to cooperate with law enforcement, and providing aid to limited-English speakers who are witnesses to or victims of crimes.
The Office of Community Affairs manages a range of community forums, coalitions, and task-forces such as the Nassau County Heroin Prevention Task Force and the Long Island Youth Safety Coalition. The office also oversees the distribution of thousands of jackets that NCDA seized from an illegal counterfeiting operation. In addition, Community Affairs manages youth programs such as Operation Safe Child and the District Attorney’s middle school mentoring program.
OFFICE OF CORE SERVICES
CORE is charged with bringing NCDA’s family, victim, community and educational services to every corner of Nassau County, and centralizing NCDA’s victims’ services response office-wide.
Created in November of 2018, the Office of CORE Services centralizes NCDA’s various community and educational outreach functions, to ensure that every school district, senior center, neighborhood watch, group home, and faith-based institution receives access to NCDA’s rich variety of presentations and programming. CORE also complements the vital quality assurance efforts of our offender-focused Phoenix Office by gauging and overseeing the programs and services provided to our victims and witnesses.
