Orange County Emergency Services Center

GOSHEN – A regional crime analysis center serving Orange, Ulster and Dutchess counties is being developed at the Orange County Emergency Services Center in Goshen.
Funded by New York and the counties, the state-of-the-art facility will
be a major tool for law enforcement, said Orange County District Attorney
David Hoovler.
“It will be an information clearinghouse that will synthesize arrest data, traffic stop data, social media data – anything that is in the public domain they will have access to, to assist us in solving crimes,” Hoovler said.
The center, to be one of the largest of its kind in the state, according to Hoovler, should be up and running next month.
The state is funding the equipment and the salary for a director. Orange County has hired an analyst, the DA and sheriff’s office each will provide an investigator and local police agencies in the three counties will provide manpower on an as needed basis.
