Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli has welcomed the reforms announced recently by Attorney General Paula Dow to combat steroid use in law enforcement.

The County prosecutor said these reforms would allow greater flexibility in confronting what has been a complex problem to law enforcement executives throughout the county.

Dow’s call for reform was the result of a six-month investigation into allegations that a doctor (now deceased) may have illegally prescribed anabolic steroids, human growth hormones (HGH), and other muscle building drugs to 248 public safety officials, mostly policemen and firefighters.
