Singas, a lifelong prosecutor, assumed top law enforcement post effective at noon today.
Chief Assistant District Attorney Madeline Singas was sworn in as Acting District Attorney of Nassau County in a ceremony at noon today officiated by Nassau Supreme Court Supervising Judge Thomas Adams in Nassau County Court.
Singas issued the following statement:
“While I have very big shoes to fill following DA Kathleen Rice’s nine years as District Attorney, I am honored and privileged to represent this office and the 1.3 million residents of Nassau as I continue our office’s commitment to integrity and the fairest administration of justice. As DA Rice’s Chief Assistant for the last four years and as a lifelong prosecutor before that, I will make sure that there’s a smooth transition at the District Attorney’s Office. I’m looking forward to continuing to refine many of the innovative programs that we initiated during the last nine years, and ensuring that Nassau County continues to be one of the safest big counties in the United States.”
