Description

Division of Criminal Justice

Office of Special Investigation – New York City  

Legal Support Analyst 

Reference No. OSI_NYC_LSA_6330

Application Deadline is August 2, 2024

Entry Level Opportunity for College Graduates 


The Office of the New York State Attorney General is seeking a talented candidate for the position of Legal Support Analyst (LSA) in the Office of Special Investigation (OSI) in New York City. OSI’s members investigate incidents throughout the state in which a police officer or a peace officer (including a corrections officer) has caused the death of a person. If warranted, OSI’s attorneys seek charges in connection with the incident and prosecute any resulting indictment. The LSA position provides a unique and exciting opportunity to join a team of experienced felony and homicide prosecutors, legal support staff, and detective investigators who work together to enhance transparency and strengthen public trust in the criminal justice system. The LSA reports to the Supervising Legal Support Analyst. 


LSAs serve a critical role in the bureau, performing investigative and legal support functions. In the course of OSI’s homicide investigations, the key responsibilities of an LSA will include:


• Reviewing and analyzing extensive documents and evidence, including medical records

• Reviewing and analyzing police officer’s body-worn camera footage and surveillance video (Please note because the videos in OSI’s cases relate to homicide investigations, they may have images and audio that some may find disturbing)

• Monitoring social media for relevant information

• Organizing case files and providing legal support 

• Drafting internal memos and preparing published reports

• Processing and organizing documents to be produced for discovery 

• Preparing court exhibits for trial, including video exhibits

• Aiding attorneys in court proceedings


Additionally, LSAs assist with the review and preparation of videos released by the OAG publicly and in response to Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) requests. This involves creating video montages and integrating various media formats. They also collaborate in compiling documents for OSI attorneys' review and coordinate with the OAG’s FOIL Office to ensure timely and thorough processing of requests.


A bachelor’s degree is required for the position. Additionally, the individual selected for the LSA position must have excellent organizational, time management, and multitasking skills. The ability to analyze and synthesize large amounts of information, strong written and verbal communication skills, attention to detail and accuracy, as well as proficiency with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook are also required. Familiarity with video editing software is beneficial but not required; comfort working with video technology or a willingness to learn is required. Experience with FOIL requests is desirable. The ideal candidate must possess a demonstrated interest in the law and law enforcement. Finally, applicants who are available to work in this position for at least two (2) years are preferred. 


The annual salary for this position is $60,917 + $3,400 in location pay. As an employee of the OAG, you will join a team of dedicated individuals who work to serve the people of our State through a wide variety of occupations. We offer a comprehensive New York State benefits package, including paid leave, health, dental, vision, and retirement benefits, and family-friendly policies. Additionally, the OAG offers a robust Workplace Flexibilities Program with multiple options for employees, including telecommuting (up to two days per week) and alternative work schedules.
