FIREARMS PROSECUTION UNIT

Formed in 2016 as part of the City’s ‘Project Fast Track’ initiative to combat gun violence, Brooklyn’s Firearms Prosecution Unit operates in the only Expedited Firearms Court in New York City. With dedicated judges assigned to this court part and a veteran prosecutor overseeing prosecutions, the DA’s Office can prosecute gun cases faster and more efficiently – sending a message that those who are caught with illegal guns will be dealt with swiftly.
