This website and the work of PCE is dedicated to Robert M. Morgenthau, the District Attorney of New York County from 1975 to 2009. His integrity, decency, intelligence and courage set the standard for what a prosecutor should be.
The mission of Prosecutors’ Center for Excellence is to work with prosecutors to improve the criminal justice system and to address emerging issues. Prosecutors, who have an ethical duty to protect public safety as well as the rights of the accused, must keep abreast of the rapid changes in the criminal justice system and the ever-increasing flow of recommendations, studies, and opinions. The insights, experience and leadership of prosecutors are essential to the implementation of lasting, effective change. Prosecutors’ Center of Excellence mission is to assist prosecutors with creating a fair and equitable criminal justice system, enhancing community trust, and implementing the initiatives of a modern prosecutor office.
