We interview Captain James Boylan, Environmental Conservation Police Officer with the NYS DEC. Captain Boylan talks about some of the history of the DEC, how Environmental Conservation Officers interact with the community, and what kinds of work DEC officers are able to do. Captain Boylan also discusses some things that impact the environment including the burning of trash, and plastic bag waste, and walks us through some of the reasons why laws exist to protect our natural resources.
