Grand Jury Unit

The Grand Jury Unit of the District Attorney’s Office summons citizens of Allegheny County to convene for 18 months as an investigative body.

Prosecutors, assisted by law enforcement personnel, present testimony/evidence of crimes occurring in Allegheny County that cannot otherwise be solved by normal investigative methods. These crimes require specific resources available only to a Grand Jury, such as the power to compel witness testimony and compel the production of documentary evidence.
