Community Partnership Unit


Introducing the Community Partnerships Unit

Established in November 2016, the Community Partnership Unit serves as a critical link between law enforcement and the community, working to address existing crime issues in our neighborhoods and helping communities implement crime prevention strategies. In addition, CPU staff will take community input on any crime concerns from community members, and work with them to develop ways to make all our communities crime-free.


First-Annual "Protecting Our Pets" Calendar Photo Contest

The Richmond County District Attorney’s Office is pleased to announce the Staten Island Loves its Pets photo Calendar Contest. It is designed to give Staten Islanders a chance to showcase their love for their animals while raising awareness of animal abuse. Upon completion the calendars will be distributed at all Staten Island veterinarians and animal hospitals to serve as a resource for pet owners.

Photos can be submitted by email to: contest@rcda.nyc.gov or mailed to 130 Stuyvesant Street, Staten Island, New York 10301 ATTN: Community Partnership Unit. All entries must include the pet owner’s name, the pet’s name, pet’s age, the pet owner’s address, email address, and phone number. All photos must be submitted as a JPEG or a PDF.

Photos should showcase creativity and may feature different seasons, events, or Staten Island locations.

By working together, we can put an end to animal abuse. For more information, please see the attached flyer as well as the rules & guidelines.



The “NO D” Initiative: Presented by our Assistant District Attorneys, “NO D” is a presentation offered to students in grades 6-12 at public and private schools throughout Staten Island about the real life horrors of drug addiction.   Until we reach our ultimate goal of continuous and mandatory substance abuse addiction education in all schools throughout the City of New York, these presentations are a way to discourage our young people from ever engaging in these life-defining deadly behaviors. If you would like to request a “NO D” presentation for your school, or would like more information, please email us at externalaffairs@rcda.nyc.gov
