Prosecutors On-Call 24/7

The earliest stages of a criminal investigation are the most critical.  A Superior Court Assistant District Attorney is “on-call” 24/7 as part of a weekly rotation, ensuring that a prosecutor is always available to assist our law enforcement partners and victims when a major crime or suspicious death occurs.  These cases are often investigated by the Massachusetts State Police Detectives Unit, comprised of Troopers assigned to the District Attorney’s Office.  In cases involving serious or fatal motor vehicle crashes, the prosecutors also work closely with the Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section (CARS), who provides an in-depth analysis of the crash scene.  The on-call prosecutor is available to answer any legal questions that may arise, review search warrant applications, discuss and review appropriate charges to file, and even respond to the scene when requested.  Once involved in a case from its earliest stages, the prosecutor will likely handle the case as it makes its way through the court system.
