Local leaders and victims' advocates come together to support proposal | Crime
On Monday, law enforcement leaders will join with crime victims’ advocates to show support for Gov. Cuomo’s proposal to expand the state’s DNA Databank.
Law enforcement leaders and victim’s advocates from Warren, Fulton and Saratoga counties will be in attendance in Lake George. According to a statement, the state law only permits DNA samples to be collected from less than half of offenders convicted of a penal law crime.
Under the new proposal, crimes where DNA would be collected would expand to include misdemeanors and all felonies under other state laws.
Leaders expected are, Warren County law enforcement leaders, District Attorney Kate Hogan, Sheriff Nathan H. “Bud” York and Glens Falls Police Chief William F. Valenza, Fulton County District Attorney Louise K. Sira, Saratoga County District Attorney James A. Murphy III, Elizabeth Glazer, the Governor’s Deputy Secretary for Public Safety and Maggie Fronk, executive director of Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Services of Saratoga County.
