Effective enforcement of the law requires the sure-handed expertise of a knowledgeable prosecutor.
The main duty of the county attorney is to represent the state in criminal cases. The county attorney works with law enforcement officers in the investigation and preparation of cases to be heard before the criminal courts. When requested in writing, the county attorney provides legal counsel to county officers.
The overwhelming importance of the office of public prosecutors arises from the fact that upon the prosecuting attorney rests the power of determining whether prosecution in any given case shall be inaugurated, or if inaugurated, pushed to a successful conclusion.
