Serving the District of New Jersey
The United States Attorney's Office is proud to represent the federal law enforcement interests of the people of New Jersey and the country. The office is responsible for the prosecution of federal criminal statutes for all of New Jersey, from acts of terrorism to public corruption, white-collar crime, organized crime and gang activities, internet-related crimes, drug importation through New Jersey ports, and many other criminal acts. The Office also is charged, through its Civil Division, with defending agencies of the United States, enforcing regulatory agencies' authority, and recovering funds from violators of U.S. criminal, regulatory, and civil laws.
It is a major, persistent undertaking that brings together the vast and experienced resources of the Office's 135 Assistant U.S. Attorneys, as well as some of the finest federal investigative agencies and agents found anywhere in the United States - the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Internal Revenue Service, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals Service, Secret Service, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, among others.
The District of New Jersey is a single district with three vicinages: Newark, Trenton and Camden. Together, the three district offices and their Assistant U.S. Attorneys and supervisors effectively cover the entire state - from High Point to Cape May Point - to enforce criminal and civil statutes of the United States.
