Major Jeffrey A. VanAuken
Troop C Commander


On June 21, 2022, New York State Police issued 15 tickets in Deposit during an "Operation Hard Hat" detail.  
Troopers monitored traffic on Interstate 17 in Deposit while road crews made bridge repairs.  During the detail, a trooper blends in with the workers and watches for risky and unsafe behavior. 

Sixteen tickets were issued:

  • Speeding – 11
  • Other – 4

Motorists are urged to drive responsibly in work zones.  Please follow the postage signage and put down any distractions.  Move over a lane when it’s safe and slow down when encountering vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights. Everyone working on the side of the road deserves to get back home to their loved ones!
