The Middlesex County Prosecutor has an obligation to investigate crimes, authorize arrests, and is responsible for obtaining indictments and prosecuting criminal cases through trial.  The Prosecutor has a duty to uphold the United States and New Jersey Constitutions in order to protect and preserve the rights of all citizens, including suspects, defendants, victims and witnesses. In addition, the Prosecutor works in partnership with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies; as well as the citizens and members of the county’s diverse communities.
The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office is currently staffed with over two hundred members including Assistant Prosecutors, Detectives, Agents, and Support Personnel.  As the chief law enforcement officer for the county, the Prosecutor also has authority over approximately 1900 sworn law enforcement officers from 29 law enforcement agencies in 25 municipalities.
The mission of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office is to ensure public safety and security through the professional investigation of crime and aggressive prosecution of the criminals responsible, while preserving the rights of all victims, witnesses, and accused. 
The vision of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office is to be part of a community where the public has faith in the appropriate response of law enforcement officers, where the rule of law is respected by all, where victims are treated with respect, where suspects and defendants are managed appropriately and in compliance with constitutional and legal protections, and where those responsible for fulfilling this mission conduct themselves with enthusiasm, compassion, and professionalism. 
The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office seeks to fulfill our mission while holding true to our core values: Integrity, Impartiality, Transparency, Victim Advocacy, Dedication, Leadership, and Excellence.
