David Paterson on Crime

Democratic Governor (NY)


Intelligence-driven, state-of-the-art crime analysis centers

During difficult economic times, crime often increases. So we should continue law enforcement strategies that work. We will move forward with Operation IMPACT, a program that uses the intelligence-driven policing strategies that have been so successful i New York City to target violent crime in high-crime areas in Upstate and on Long Island. Last year, violent crime in the 17 IMPACT counties decreased by 10 percent.

Given the success of the intelligence-driven approach, we are now opening state-of-the-art crime analysis centers in major Upstate cities. In the past four months, we have opened crime analysis centers in Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, with plans for one in Albany later this year.

We should continue these efforts. And we call upon our new leaders in Washington to invest in the programs and people that will keep our communities safe.
