Green, Executive Deputy Commissioner of the state Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS), Chairman of the Legislature Steve Brescia, Legislators Kevin Hines and Barry Cheney, and O.C. Commissioner of Emergency Services Brendan Casey also attended the event.
The Hudson Valley Crime Analysis Center is the ninth intelligence and data-sharing center established by the DCJS in partnership with local law enforcement agencies and will provide investigative support and information to help police and prosecutors in the region more effectively prevent, reduce and solve crime.
Located in the Orange County Emergency Services Center in Goshen, the Hudson Valley Center serves 65 police agencies in the three-county area which includes 96 municipalities and more than 2,700 square miles. The Center began operations in March and presently has a staff of 14 full- and part-time crime analysts and investigators from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and county Emergency Services; Ulster County Sheriff’s Office; and police departments in the cities of Newburgh, Poughkeepsie and Middletown; the village of Montgomery and town of New Windsor.
