Brooklyn is divided into 23 police precincts, each with its own commander and community precinct council. To better serve these diverse communities, the office is divided into five trial zones. Each zone encompasses four or five police precincts within a specified geographic area, and is distinguishable by a color-coded designation: Red, Blue, Grey, Green, and Orange. This approach enhances communication between Bureau Chiefs, Precinct Commanders and community leaders, thereby aiding law enforcement in establishing priorities for reducing criminal activity.
Assistant district attorneys within each zone handle a full range of offenses from violations and misdemeanors to drug sales, assaults, burglaries, robberies, and attempted murder. They present felony cases to the Grand Jury for indictment and then prosecute those cases in Brooklyn’s Supreme Court through disposition.
