 General Information

The District Attorney's Office is responsible for prosecuting criminal activity occurring within Snyder County.  The District Attorney supervises investigations by law enforcement, provides guidance and advice to police, insures victims and witnesses are informed of their rights, organizes and implements educational programs throughout the county and is the final authority on what charges will be brought against any individual.

 

 Victim Services

As a victim of a crime or as a witness to a crime, it is likely that you will be required to attend a court proceeding at some time.  This Victim/Witness Website has been provided  to serve as a source of information with you in mind.

In our criminal justice system, the police and the District Attorney's office cannot work alone.  We must all work together to effectively punish criminals.  Through your cooperation, you not only benefit the victim, but also help to protect all citizens and victims of crimes throughout your community.

In addition to the information provided in these web pages, the Snyder County Victim/Witness Coordinator will be available to help you answer any other questions that you may have.

Your cooperation is both valued and appreciated.

 Bad Checks

If you are a victim of a Bad Check in an amount over $200, you can get help through the Snyder County Detectives Office.  First, you need to send a certified letter to the person who issued the check.  In the letter you should include the reason for the letter, a 10 day time frame to make good on the check, and that you will turn the Bad Check in for collection if the money is not received.  If after the 10 day period (from the day you get the green certified card back) you still have not received payment, submit a copy of all correspondance, the bad check, and the certified mailings to the District Attorney's Office and one of our detectives will investigate.

If you feel like you need a Protection From Abuse Order, you can get an application in the Prothonotory's Office in the Snyder County Courthouse.  If you need help filling it out or would like to speak with someone, please call Transitions (formerly Women in Transition) at 1-800-850-7948.
