The Attorney General's Office of Statewide Prosecution is directed by the Florida Constitution to prosecute crimes that impact two or more judicial circuits in the State of Florida. Working regularly with state and federal counterparts, the office focuses on complex, often large scale, organized criminal activity. The Office of Statewide Prosecution is authorized to act throughout Florida and works closely with law enforcement and State Attorneys to coordinate the prosecutions of multi-circuit violations of State law.
The Statewide Prosecutor is appointed by the Attorney General and serves a term of four years. The current Statewide Prosecutor is Nicholas B. Cox, who acts as the agency head for eight offices throughout the state. Since 2019, the Office of Statewide Prosecution has secured an overall conviction rate of 99%.
