CARMEL, NEW YORK – January 19, 2018: Putnam County District Attorney Robert Tendy announced today
that his office has used asset forfeiture money to purchase state of the art computer equipment for the New York State
Troopers Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Troop K. The equipment will allow processing and analyzing of massive
electronic data records in connection with police investigations and will provide remote access to law enforcement
“I’ve encouraged law enforcement agencies to give us a list of items that will fill a serious need for some of the
investigative initiatives they are involved in, and we’ve been happy to purchase a lot of equipment for a number of
agencies,” Tendy said. “This Microsoft Pro and the accompanying equipment will be a great assistance to the New York
State Troopers. It will exponentially speed up and organize many aspects of their investigations. It’s a great tool, and
I’m really happy to help out.”
Captain John Ryan and Lieutenant Scott Hurley of the Troop K BCI were on hand to accept the computer. “This model
is more advanced and much faster than what we have been using for some complex databases. It is going to be
extremely helpful to us,” Ryan said.
Tendy added, “This is why asset forfeiture is so important. We forfeit the proceeds of crimes and use them to fight
other crimes. Any time we get a chance to help out, we will.”
The equipment will be put to use immediately.
