  • The Primary Goals are the vigorous prosecution of juvenile offenders who commit violent or gang related crimes and the prompt and efficient prosecution of juvenile offenders in general. Other goals include the development and implementation of an internal automated docket control mechanism, as well as continued training and contact with law enforcement, juvenile probation, schools, and various community groups concerned with juvenile delinquency.
  • The Juvenile Prosecution Unit is responsible for prosecuting individuals between the ages of 10 through 16 inclusively who commit crimes in El Paso County. The Juvenile Unit consists of six Assistant County Attorneys, four legal secretaries, and the investigators.
