County Attorney

Tony Palumbo is the Anoka County Attorney. He is the chief legal officer for Anoka County and was elected by voters throughout the County. The Chief Deputy County Attorney is David Cossi.

The County Attorney serves as the chief prosecutor for all adult felony crimes and juvenile offenses in Anoka County. The County Attorney's Office will prosecute aggressively and strategically in order to protect the community and to maintain public safety.

Community collaborations will be fostered to reduce and prevent crime, to promote public safety, and to protect the rights of people and businesses in the community. One of the priorities of the Office is for assistant County Attorneys and staff to be more involved in the community as they have a wealth of talent and knowledge to share with others.

The County Attorney's Office also serves as a legal advisor for the County Board of Commissioners, county officials, and county departments. Legal advice will be provided to aid policy makers as they determine how to make investments in highways, parks, libraries, human services, law enforcement, and other County departments. The office also represents the County in civil lawsuits, child support matters, adult protection, and mental health commitments.
