Albany--  A partnership between Albany State and Albany Police could help solve crimes quicker.

APD is working on a deal with ASU's Criminal Justice Department to allow forensic science students to intern with police and work in their crime lab. ASU faculty members would also be able to do research there.

In turn, police could use the college's forensic science lab and take advantage of student and faculty expertise.

"We can provide them with a lot of testing here so they don't have to go a far distance to test things like drugs, blood testing, hair samples, footprints, etcetera," said ASU Criminal Justice and Forensic Science Chair Dr. Charles Ochie.  

Dr. Ochie says results of those tests can get to APD much faster than going out of town.  Police may also be able to gain certification with 40 hours of Criminal Investigation seminars.

They hope to finalize the agreement in a couple of weeks. It may also help The Criminal Justice Department gain accreditation.
