Community Justice

Dear Web Visitor,

As a candidate for Cook County State’s Attorney last year, I promised I would open community justice offices to ensure that our citizens understand the critical role that prosecutors play in the criminal justice system and throughout our communities.

I am very pleased to report that we have now opened two Community Justice Center locations on the city's North and South sides, and we are continuing our efforts to reach other Cook County communities as well.

In these offices, our staff will work closely on the prosecution and prevention of local crime along with our local police districts, community groups, schools, businesses and area residents.

With the opening of these offices we hope to repair the trust that has been lost in recent years between law enforcement and the citizens we serve.

Anita Alvarez,
Cook County State’s Attorney
