COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

The Nassau County District Attorney’s Community Partnership Program (CPP) is a community-based resource and referral office that provides social services to the general community but focusing on the re-entry population, young people at risk of or involved with gangs and other justice-involved individuals.

Office of Immigrant Affairs

The Office of Immigrant Affairs helps Nassau County’s large immigrant or foreign-born population navigate the criminal justice system, encouraging immigrants to cooperate with law enforcement, and providing aid to limited-English speakers who are witnesses to or victims of crimes.

COMMUNITY AFFAIRS

The Office of Community Affairs manages a range of community relations programs and serves as a primary point of contact for community partnership requests.  

SCHOOL-BASED PROGRAMS AND YOUTH PROGRAMMING

The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office (NCDA) is pleased to partner with educators, parents, and children of all ages, from elementary through high school, to raise awareness about the challenges impacting our County’s young people. Our comprehensive approach includes programming that reaches directly into Nassau’s public and private school districts to provide information and resources for students, parents, and educators.  Through this endeavor, we are committed to providing our youth with the support that they need to make good choices in their lives.

We are also available to provide NCDA staff as guest speakers for career days and other school events.  If you would like to have our office present any of the above programs or services at your school, please contact Nicole L’Hommedieu, our School Program Coordinator at 516-662-8254 or by email at Nicole.L’Hommedieu@nassauda.org.  We look forward to partnering with you to educate and protect the young people of Nassau County.
