ENCON Officers Make Arrests in Illegal Dumping Case

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

As PBA of NYS members across the state work day and night to ensure the safety of their communities, we’re happy to share the news regarding recent activities by DEC officers and investigators.

As originally reported by the Albany Times Union, several DEC officers were involved in the investigation and subsequent arrests of three Saratoga county men who illegally disposed of radioactive materials at the home of one of the perpetrators.

Thankfully, the health of the surrounding residents was not threatened. A plan for the safe removal and remediation of the radioactive source was developed by DEC and DOH.

The PBA of NYS leadership team congratulates all involved on a job well done. If you’d like to share a story about PBA of NYS members in action, please send an email to with a detailed message.
