DECISION & JUDGMENT
ADJUDGED that the determination is confirmed, the petition is denied, and the proceeding is dismissed on the merits, with costs.
Contrary to the petitioner's contention, there is substantial evidence in the record to support the determination under review (see Matter of Lieberman v City of New York, 52 AD3d 719; Sheriff's Dept. v State Div. of Human Rights, 129 AD2d 789).
The petitioner's remaining contentions are without merit.
RIVERA, J.P., BALKIN, LEVENTHAL and LOTT, JJ., concur.
