Saint Rose students to put fresh eyes on cold cases

ALBANY - Every year, despite hard work and long hours, police departments across the country reach a dead end in some of their investigations, including burglaries, missing persons cases and violent crimes.

Sometimes, there are just too many new cases coming in and not enough resources to follow every lead.

However, an Albany college has an idea that could change that and put fresh eyes on cold cases.

The College of Saint Rose has launched its new Cold Case Analysis Center - one of only a half dozen in the United States that dedicates students to working on unsolved crimes and disappearances.

Students who are majoring in criminal justice forensic psychology or forensic science programs learn and practice techniques used by investigators.

They'll have to have already studied investigation techniques and sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Participation is available to students as a one-year internship.
