The County Attorney's Office is located on Main Street in Newport. The County Attorney is a constitutionally elected official and is the chief law enforcement officer in the County. The County Attorney is charged with prosecution of felonies and misdemeanor appeals from the district courts and works in conjunction with the State Attorney General's Office, Sheriff's Department, NH State Police and local police departments.
In addition, the County Attorney represents the County in all civil matters involving the departments or agents of the county, and works with the medical referee in cases of untimely deaths. Along with the County Attorney, the County Attorney's Office currently employs two Assistant Attorneys, two full time and one part-time secretary.
The office also works closely with the Victim Witness Program. The Victim Witness Program was created to ensure that the rights of the victim are protected; reducing the impact the crime and resulting involvement in the criminal justice system has on the lives of victims and witnesses. State, Local and County resources fund this program, which staffs one Victim Witness Program Coordinator.
