Local state prosecutors, district state prosecutors and higher state prosecutors are assigned to district state prosecutors' offices. Their area of operation covers eleven district courts. State prosecutors from these district prosecutors' offices also appear before local courts in their territory.
Some district prosecutors' offices have external departments as organisational units.
