Cyrus R. Vance

Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., was first inaugurated as the District Attorney of New York County on January 1, 2010. Over the following four years, Mr. Vance enhanced the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office as a national leader in criminal justice by expanding the offices expertise on an array of 21st century crimes, including identity theft, cybercrime, white-collar fraud, hate crimes, terrorism, domestic violence, human trafficking, and violent and gang-related crimes.

Upon taking office, Mr. Vance modernized the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office by reorganizing its resources and creating new specialized bureaus and units, including the Crime Strategies Unit, Forensic Science/Cold Case Unit, Cybercrime and Identity Theft Bureau, Major Economic Crimes Bureau, Special Victims Bureau, Violent Criminal Enterprises Unit, Hate Crimes Unit, and the Public Corruption Unit.

As District Attorney, Mr. Vance’s many achievements include the takedown of numerous violent street gangs, dismantling of several major domestic and international cybercrime and identity theft operations, the first convictions of individuals on State terror charges in New York State Court, and the recovery of billions of dollars from international financial institutions that had been engaged in violating international sanctions for the benefit of countries like Iran, Libya, and Sudan.
