Child Protection Unit

Our mission is to prosecute crimes of child abuse, all crimes of a sexual nature involving victims under the age of 18, as well as cases involving sexual assault of adults.

About the Unit

police line

The Macomb County Child Protection Unit, or CPU, prosecutes those who commit crimes against minors and adults in sexual abuse and assault cases.

The CPU works with local and state police agencies to investigate and bring to justice child abuse cases,  all cases of a sexual nature when the victim is younger than 18 at the time of the criminal acts, and also cases where adults are sexually assaulted.

The CPU Unit works to meet two goals:

  1. To investigate every case in a full and fair manner, so that justice may be done; and
  2. To treat victims and families fairly and responsibly, so that victims are not dissuaded from reporting crimes and following through on their prosecution.

The assistant prosecutors in the CPU are seasoned trial attorneys who have undergone, and continue to undergo, specialized training in the field. They have dedicated their professional lives to helping victims against abuse and sexual predators.
