CRIMINAL COURT BUREAU

The Criminal Court Bureau oversees the office’s legal and support staff operating in the non-specialized court parts of Brooklyn Criminal Court at 120 Schermerhorn Street.

The bureau staff meets regularly with representatives from the court and defense bar to troubleshoot any systemic problems and to make sure that Brooklyn’s misdemeanor cases are processed fairly and efficiently.
