It is with deep regret and sadness that we announce the line-of-duty death of New York State Trooper Brian S. Falb on March 13, 2017 as the result of an illness stemming from his assignment at the World Trade Center site following the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. Following the events of 9/11, Trooper Falb was assigned to New York City to aid in the search and recovery efforts.
Trooper Falb, age 47, entered the State Police in May of 1998 and served with the State Police for 18 years. He served as a Trooper in Troop B for his entire career, and his latest assignment was with the Traffic Incident Management Team. He is survived by his wife and their four children.
