City Neighborhood Prosecution Team
Written by Crime Content Coordinator   

Do you have a nuisance property in your neighborhood that just will not respond to repeated visits by police or code enforcement people? The City of Tucson's Neighborhood Prosecution Team may be able to help.

"The Neighborhood Prosecution Team (NPT) works closely with registered neighborhood associations and other community groups to improve the quality of life in Tucson’s neighborhoods by identifying problems and developing strategies to solve them. The NPT combines traditional criminal prosecution with other, less traditional approaches such as code enforcement and civil nuisance abatement.  The unit focuses primarily on slum prosecution, code enforcement, prostitution, drug houses, property maintenance violations (weeds, refuse, illegal storage, junked vehicles), excessive noise, drug activity, high crime properties, graffiti abatement and other  “nuisance“ or “quality of life“ problems."  More information . . .

City of Tucson - City Attorney's Office - Criminal Division - (520) 791-4104 - Asst. City Attorney Tom McMahon is the main contact - Alan Merritt is experienced with neighborhood issues and Laura Brynwood is the City Prosecutor.
