MIDDLETOWN – The 41st annual New York State Police Annual Awards Ceremony was held May 18, 2017, at the New York State Police Academy in Albany, NY.
Troop F BCI was awarded the Superintendent’s Unit Citation Award.
According to Thursday’s press release: During the 2016 calendar year, the Troop F Bureau of Criminal Investigation Unit investigated more than 6,500 cases, closing more than 1,500 by arrest. It is not only the volume of work that sets the Troop F BCI apart, but also the exceptional quality of the investigations that are conducted. During the first two months of 2016, members of Troop F BCI conducted four homicide investigations across each of the three Zones. Each case was a collaboration and a true display of cooperation and resulted in each of the four investigations being closed by arrest.
Troop F BCI went on to investigate eight additional homicides, including a quadruple murder and a police officer involved shooting. Investigators from throughout the Troop were also involved in two large scale drug sweeps resulting in the arrest of over 50 suspects on federal narcotics trafficking charges. Additionally, Troop F BCI Members were called upon to investigate a massive industrial accident on the Tappan Zee Bridge and a bomb threat at the United States Military Academy at West Point.
