DEP Announcement Board


To the NYC Department of Environmental Protection Police PBA

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection Police, also known as DEP Police, and formerly known as the Bureau of Water Supply Police and the Aqueduct Police, is a law enforcement agency in New York whose duties are to protect and preserve the New York City water supply system, the nation’s largest single source water supply. The department has proudly protected and preserved the water supply system for over 100 years.

Winners and Losers, February 21, 2014

A mayor filling potholes. A reporter dodging buses. A governor who insists he isn’t running for president tweeting about past presidents on Presidents’ Day. A state senator accused of plagiarism. And a fury over educating prison inmates. This was just one of those weeks in New York State where you felt like you were at a tennis match–your head bobbing back and forth from story to story. Like any game, there were winners and losers.


Kenneth Wynder – Wynder’s Law Enforcement Employees Benevolent Association was the first union domino to fall on the long list of unsettled municipal contracts that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has to settle, and he made out pretty well for a portion of his membership. Wynder’s 200 Department of Environmental Protection officers each received an average of $50,000 in retroactive raises, as well as double their differential pay on working nights. If it turns out that this contract might serve as the template for settlements with the other municipal organizations, those union leaders should tip their cap to Wynder for setting a favorable pattern.
