Cook County State’s Attorney
Anita Alvarez, State’s Attorney:
The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office is the second largest prosecutor’s office in the nation. It prosecutes all misdemeanor and felony crimes committed in Cook County. In addition to direct criminal prosecution, the State’s Attorney’s Office files legal actions to enforce child support orders, protect consumers and the elderly from exploitation, and provide assistance to victims of domestic violence. In response to the contrasting designations, the office is divided into seven bureaus: Criminal Prosecutions, Juvenile Justice, Narcotics, Special Prosecutions, Civil Actions, Investigations and Administrative Services.
