State and local prosecutors handle the majority of criminal prosecutions (98%) that occur in the United States. In 2005, our nation's prosecutors handled more than 9.9 million cases, an increase of nearly 1 million cases since 2001. With this increase in caseload, prosecutors' offices across the country are in vital need of quality training and timely resources.

Since its founding in 1951 AWI has sought to reduce the sum total of pain and fear inflicted on animals by people. In the organization's early years our particular emphasis was on the desperate needs of animals used for experimentation. In the decades that followed we expanded the scope of our work to address many other areas of animal suffering.
