Waste Management workers are out and about when almost everyone else is not. Except someone who might be up to no good.
A former FBI agent recently trained all Waste Management drivers, helpers and technicians in Rensselaer and Albany Counties to act as a mobile community watch.
“They’re on these routes every day so they’re used to the normal situation so they are able to recognize a non-normal situation,” explains Ken Bevis of Waste Management. Trucks are now armed with a cell phone, camera and incident reports so they’ll have accurate information for police and, possibly, prosecutors.
