Commonwealth’s Attorney

Responsibilities
The commonwealth's attorney for Pittsylvania County is a constitutional officer, elected by the voters of the county to serve as the county's prosecutor and chief law enforcement official. All of the prosecutors and staff of the office are dedicated to the pursuit of justice and protection of the rights and property of all citizens of, and visitors to, Pittsylvania County.

We work in close cooperation with the Victim Witness Assistance Program, the Sheriff's Office, and other law enforcement agencies to vigorously and fairly protect the rights of crime victims, to enforce the criminal laws of the commonwealth, and to hold accountable those who violate the law.

We are dedicated to conducting this vital public safety function with integrity, professionalism, and respect for the rights of all we serve.
