Before a crime can be prosecuted, it must be reported and investigated by the police.
The police will conduct an initial investigation of the matter. If the officers believe that a felony-level offense or juvenile offense has occurred, the police department will forward their investigation to the County Attorney’s Office for possible prosecution. If a misdemeanor has occurred, the police department will forward their investigation to the city attorney’s office.
