                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 24, 2007

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Nassau County Police Department
       ("Nassau County"), owner of antenna structure # 1224208 in Mineola,

    2. On March 14, 2007, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected antenna structure # 1224208, located at 1490 Franklin Ave,
       Mineola, NY 11501, and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S 17.23: "Unless otherwise specified by the Commission, each new
   or altered antenna structure to be registered on or after January 1, 1996,
   must conform to the FAA's painting and lighting recommendations set forth
   on the structure's FAA determination of "no hazard." The FCC's Antenna
   Structure Registration ("ASR") database currently indicates that the
   antenna structure number 1224208 requires aviation orange and white paint
   and red obstruction lighting in accordance with FAA Circular Number
   70/7460-1K, Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 12. The antenna structure does not
   conform to these recommendations, but is equipped with a high intensity
   flashing white obstruction lighting system, and therefore is in violation
   of 47 C.F.R. S 17.23. In order to come into compliance with the
   Commission's rules, Nassau County must: (1) obtain a new FAA "no hazard"
   determination indicating that the current lighting system is permitted and
   then submit a modified antenna structure registration to reflect the new
   "no hazard" determination, (2) submit a modified registration if a new FAA
   "no hazard" determination already has been obtained or (3) come into
   compliance with the current ASR by removing the white obstruction lighting
   and painting the tower.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Nassau County, must submit
       a written statement concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of
       release of this Notice. The response must fully explain each
       violation, must contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to
       correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and should include a
       time line for completion of pending corrective action(s). The response
       must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or officer of the
       Nassau County. All replies and documentation sent in response to this
       Notice should be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above,
       and mailed to the following address:

   Federal Communications Commission

   New York Office

   201 Varick Street, Suite 1151

   New York, NY 10014

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Nassau County Police Department  at its
       address of record.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
