Middlesex District Attorney Office's Intervention & Prevention Programs and Initiatives

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan is committed to innovative crime prevention and intervention initiatives.  The District Attorney’s staff partners with community groups, educators, business owners, medical professionals, social service providers, and law enforcement officers to address a variety of public safety issues. 

Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, Inc. is a non-profit 501.c(3) organization which closely partners with the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.  Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan serves as the Chair of the Board of Directors.  Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, Inc., known as MPY, has provided training, fostered collaboration, and developed programming to increase the health and safety of students in Middlesex County for more than two decades.

The Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, MPY and over 60 Middlesex County school districts participate.  We are all committed to examining pressing social, legal, and health-related issues and solutions.  Through these efforts educators, parents, and students regularly engage in trainings with law enforcement, social services, and community-based organizations.  These interactions provide the foundation for creating solution-oriented, community-based, multi-disciplinary approaches to addressing youth violence, substance abuse, internet safety, and bullying.  Collectively, we offer in-service trainings, presentations, and seminars for school staff, faculty, parents, students, and community members designed to keep Middlesex County’s cities and towns safe.
