Trial Preparation

District Attorney Investigators assist prosecutor staff in preparing for the various court processes on cases which were initially investigated by other law enforcement agencies. The bulk of the trial preparation activities were done by staff from the agency which originally investigated the case but there are often many other tasks which need to be done to successfully prosecute the case. These tasks ranged from interviewing witnesses, serving court documents, collecting additional evidence, and many other tasks. Major crime cases including homicides are often cases which require additional trial preparation work by all law enforcement agencies involved in the case including the DA's Office.

Conducting interviews using the investigative tool known as the Computer Voice Stress Analyzer (CVSA) may also be part of the investigative steps taken by the investigators. The use of CVSA as an investigative tool may also be used in other investigations conducted by DA Investigators.
