Bridget G. Brennan, Special Narcotics Prosecutor has been New York City’s Special Narcotics Prosecutor since 1998. Appointed by New York City’s five elected District Attorneys, Ms. Brennan is the first woman to hold that position. Ms. Brennan is in charge of an agency solely dedicated to the investigation and prosecution of narcotics offenses in New York City. The Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor is widely recognized for its legal and technological expertise. It processes an average of 3,000 arrests a year, prosecutes national and international drug trafficking and money laundering organizations, and oversees large-scale operations targeting violent drug gangs in New York City neighborhoods. Under Ms. Brennan’s direction, the office has developed innovative strategies to stem the flow of drugs into the city and target emerging problems. Ms. Brennan established the Heroin Interdiction Team (HIT), the Digital Forensic Services Unit, the Prescription Drug Investigation Unit (PDIU), the Narcotics Gang Unit, and the Money Laundering and Financial Investigation Unit. In addition, Special Narcotics runs programs that offer treatment instead of prison to hundreds of addicted defendants every year.
