Commissioner Joel A. Miele Sr., P.E., of the New York City Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) announced today that the City will be holding
an examination for the title, Environmental Police Officer. DEP Police
will hire qualified applicants to fill positions at the Department's precincts

"This is an excellent opportunity for men and women interested in a
career in law enforcement," said Commissioner Miele. "It is particularly
rewarding for those who wish to work in the environmental protection field.
We provide first-rate training, leading to accreditation with all the powers
recognized in police officers throughout the state. DEP's Police Officer salaries
are competitive, starting at $28,056 and progressing up to $42,587."
