The New York State Preparedness Training Center in Oriskany is hosting a two-day training symposium for crime analysts.

Michael Green is Executive Deputy Commissioner of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services.

Green says about 80 crime analysts who work at eight Crime Analysis Centers across the state are attending the training.  The training is designed to help the crime analysts hone their skills.

The centers serve law enforcement agencies in 16 counties.

Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol says the crime analysis centers are an important tool for his office.  Maciol says the centers use the latest technology available along with social media resources.

Utica is home to the Mohawk Valley Crime Analysis Center, the newest in the network established by the DCJS.

Other centers are located in Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, Malone, Niagara Falls, Rochester and Syracuse.
