Our Mission

Our mission is to uphold the public’s trust in the pursuit of justice and the enforcement of the law. The Office of the State Attorney works to protect the public from those who endanger, threaten, and degrade the security of the community and to protect the personal rights of those we serve. We enforce the criminal laws of the State of Florida by prosecuting cases aggressively and efficiently in a manner that maximizes public safety and minimizes victimization. We strive to create an environment where victims are treated with dignity, compassion and respect.

Our office also provides direction and leadership to the Criminal Justice System in the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit. The importance of our mission dictates that each employee focus their best efforts at achieving our goals. Each employee is expected to exercise good judgment and professional behavior in performing their duties. All employees will be held to the highest standard of integrity in their conduct.
