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.
