Homicide Bureau


The Homicide Bureau is the elite bureau of the Erie County District Attorney’s Office. The Homicide Bureau Chief is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition to maintaining a full caseload, prosecutors assigned to the Homicide Bureau frequently direct homicide investigations. These duties typically are exercised during the late evening or early morning hours. The Homicide Bureau also maintains a second chair program; i.e., prosecutors from other bureaus are mentored in investigation, preparation and trial technique by assisting a veteran homicide prosecutor.
