Camden is the home of one of the two branch offices of the United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey. The Camden Office generally covers the Counties of Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem.
Criminal Division AUSAs assigned to the Camden Office carry diverse case loads, ranging from reactive violent crime cases and large-scale drug cases to complex white collar investigations.
While all of the Camden criminal AUSAs are generalists, several of them focus on either white collar investigations, such as fraud and public corruption, or organized crime cases. The Office serves all of the federal client agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Secret Service, the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Customs Service, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the U.S. Marshal's Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the Drug Enforcement Administration. In addition, the AUSAs frequently work with state, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies.
The Camden staff also includes AUSAs who handle affirmative and defensive civil matters. The civil litigation matters span from personal injury and employment discrimination actions to false claim suits and cases filed by prisoners housed at the Federal Correctional Institution at Fairton.
The Camden branch office is also staffed with AUSAs who handle criminal appeals before the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
