The Division of Criminal Justice is responsible for the prosecution of criminal housing matters through the Supervisory Assistant State's Attorney for Housing Matters in the Office of the Chief State's Attorney and prosecutors assigned to the Superior Court housing sessions statewide.

It is the overall policy goal of housing prosecution to promote full and prompt compliance with housing matters, which include violations of state or local building, fire, health and housing safety laws that apply to residential and commercial properties and to assure that criminal landlord-tenant laws such as criminal lockout, illegal termination of essential services and criminal damage to landlordís property by a tenant are uniformly, fully and effectively enforced.

Housing prosecutors are committed to the maintenance of decent, safe and sanitary housing, handling cases from investigation through criminal trial.

Housing prosecutors are certified Connecticut police instructors on landlord/tenant criminal disputes. They also provide routine enforcement trainings to fire marshals, building officials, health officials and other public safety officials.

State law (Connecticut General Statutes section 51-286b) states that the prosecuting attorney assigned to handle housing matters may initiate prosecutions for violations of any state or municipal housing or health law, code or ordinance either upon the affidavit of an individual complainant or upon complaint from a state or municipal agency responsible for the enforcement of any law, code or ordinance concerning housing matters.
