NYC Smoking Ban

When NYC instituted the Smoking Ban in all parks and beaches on May 23, 2011, the mayor said that the NYPD is not expected to enforce the law. Instead the NYC Parks & Recreation PEP (Parks Enforcement Patrol) officers will be responsible for writing the $50.00 fines.

This is the PEP officer that NYC is depending on to enforce the No-Smoking law.
This PEP officer was photographed on Thursday September 15, 2011 in Central Park behind the MET and the East Drive near lampost #8201.
