|The Putnam County Prosecutor's Office primary goal is to protect the health and property of the citizens of Putnam County. The Prosecutor's office works closely with the law enforcement community as an investigative resource and as a legal resource when there is a question regarding interpretation of the law. In addition, the office serves to represent the community when seeking to hold those persons accountable that choose to offend the community. The office is not available to offer legal advice to the citizens nor serve as the legal counsel for individuals, except in very rare events. We recommend that persons seeking legal advice first seek the counsel of an attorney.
The Prosecutor of Putnam County currently has several initiatives to reduce crime and violence in the county:
- No tolerance for Domestic Violence - the Prosecutor's office is prepared to work closely with the law enforcement community as an investigator and prosecutor in domestic violence cases.
- No tolerance for Illegal Drug Activity - the Prosecutor's office is dedicated to reduce the illegal drug trafficking and use in Putnam County. Persons seeking to use or move illegal drugs in the county should take notice that Putnam County will have no tolerance for this activity.
- No tolerance for Cyber Crime - the Prosecutor's office has a broad definition of "Cyber Crime": Identity theft, child pornography, cyber bullying, credit card fraud, and cyber stalking are all included in the definition. The Prosecutor understands the value and depth of information that is provided by the Internet, but believes that Cyber Crime is an offense against the community and will seek action in cases that are discovered within the county.
