Rockland County District Attorney Thomas E. Walsh II Sworn In for Second Term as District Attorney

DA Walsh is a lifelong resident of Rockland County and graduate of Fordham College and St. John’s University School of Law. He has practiced law for over forty years, including thirty-five years of judicial experience – at the local, county, and state level.

In DA Walsh’s first term as District Attorney, the Office has worked in cooperation with federal, state, and local law enforcement to combat drug dealing and the targeting of minors. In 2022 the Office led a months-long cybercrime operation into adults using the internet to meet minors in Rockland County. The operation netted the arrest of seven individuals and a guilty plea. Under the direction of District Attorney Walsh, the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office became a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) in 2020.

In partnership with the New York State Attorney General and the Clarkstown Police Department, the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office hosted a “Gun Buyback” event in July of 2021. In total, 147 firearms were collected – 57 handguns, 63 rifles and shotguns, 4 assault rifles, and 23 non-working or antique guns. The event provided residents with the ability to safely discard old or unused firearms and make sure they don’t get into the wrong hands.

In February of 2022, the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office coordinated a large-scale law enforcement operation, involving 12 local, county and federal agencies, and executed 3 search warrants throughout Rockland County without incident. As a result of the operation a total of 13 illegal firearms were seized and 4 suspects taken into custody. Ghost guns are unserialized and untraceable firearms that can be bought online and assembled at home. They are often sold through “ghost gun kits,” which include all of the parts and often the equipment necessary to build these weapons at home.

The Rockland County District Attorney’s Office for the first time held a legislative breakfast that was open to all elected officials in Rockland County. The event provided elected officials the ability to meet the men and women who work in the District Attorney’s Office, hear about the many programs offered, learn about different crime trends and statistics, and ask any questions they may have. The legislative breakfast is held on an annual basis.

In February of 2023, the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office Drug Task Force working with the DEA arrested a Congers resident with 5 kilos of cocaine with an estimated street value of $1.5 million. Investigators also seized two guns, $23,000 cash, marijuana, and edible tetrahydrocannabinol, known as THC, in packages with common candy names.

Since taking office, it has been a priority for District Attorney Walsh that the Office be involved in the community we serve. We have participated in street fairs, community meetings, and various events around the county. This community outreach provides opportunities for the public to meet the people who work in the Office and learn about the work of the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office.
