The head of the union representing New York State Troopers said he is pleased there are 133 new State Troopers, but he says it still is not enough.
Albany's continuing fiscal problems have affected the State Police since retiring Troopers weren't being replaced. The graduating class on Tuesday was the first since 2009.
State Police PBA President Thomas Mungeer said the force is still probably 300 Troopers below what it should be. He said crime and all of the other events in the life of a Trooper aren't dropping in number.
