Public Integrity Unit

Office of the State's Attorney for Prince George's County

The Public Integrity Unit (PIU) is the newest unit in the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office.  This unit was created in 2018 by State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy to assure the community that public officials in Prince George’s County are being held to the highest ethical standards.

PIU oversees the investigation and prosecution of crimes affecting government integrity, including police excessive force cases, theft by government officials, bribery of elected and appointed officials, and other related offenses. 

PIU has pushed for the transparency of the disciplinary files of police officers to ensure that defendants are treated fairly in the prosecution of criminal cases.  The Unit has actively supported legislation in Annapolis that would allow public access to police personnel files.

The Unit has successfully prosecuted cases involving excessive use of force by law enforcement, and theft by government officials.

PIU is comprised of attorneys with a wealth of prosecution and litigation experience at the federal and state level.
