Welcome to the Official Website of the Muskegon County Prosecutor, DJ Hilson. As the chief law enforcement officer for Muskegon County, Prosecutor Hilson is dedicated to the principles of Justice, Fairness, and Community. This site will allow visitors access to information regarding upcoming community events, introduce the members of the staff of the Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office, and guide visitors through the criminal justice process.
In addition, this site will provide detailed information regarding community outreach programs focused on crime prevention including the Social Justice Diversion Program, Men & Women of Honor, Project Justice, and the Operation Graduation truancy initiative.
The Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office is proud to welcome the newest member of our team, Oscar. Oscar is an 18 month old black lab who comes to our office by way of the Canine Advocacy Program. Prosecutor Hilson is honored to be among the first Prosecutor's Offices in the state to utilize the services of a canine advocate.
Oscar has already made himself a vital member of the team offering comfort and assistance to young victims. Oscar will continue to provide a calming influence to young victims when they have to meet with investigators and Oscar is even able to accompany those victims to court to help them through the often difficult task of confronting defendants.
Oscar has his own Facebook page. Like him here (and who wouldn't!). You can read more about Oscar and his journey to the Prosecutor's Office here.
