ECOs in New York City

Law enforcement activities performed by Environmental Conservation Officers has traditionally focused on fish and wildlife regulations. This was true until the 1970’s when additional duties were added to their responsibilities. Since then, enforcement has continued to evolve as more and more responsibility for enforcement of environmental laws was given to the Environmental Conservation Officers. Nowhere is this more evident than in New York City, where ECOs continue to enforce fish and wildlife laws, but also focus much of their time to enforcing environmental regulations that protect the health and well-being of the residents of one of the largest cities in the world.
