Community Prosecution is based on a closer working relationship between prosecutors and the local neighborhoods and communities where crime is occurring. Prosecutors are assigned to work with police, local residents, businesses and others in a specific geographic area to develop strategies for preventing and prosecuting crime, as well as to identify appropriate consequences for those who break the law.

The goal of community prosecution is to help ensure that the criminal justice system is accountable and responsive to the residents of Hennepin County by building stronger connections between what happens in the courtroom and what is happening in local communities.

The County Attorney's Office has established community prosecution projects in different areas of Hennepin County. These include community prosecutors who handle all juvenile cases in Bloomington, Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal, Eden Prairie, Edina, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, New Hope, Plymouth, Richfield and Robbinsdale. In addition, there are community prosecutors who handle all felony-level property crimes in each of the five police precincts in Minneapolis.

The U.S. Department of Justice has honored the Hennepin County Attorney's Office as one of only ten jurisdictions nationwide to be a community prosecution leadership site.
