NYS Senator Eric Adams’ bill S6102A has been signed into law by the Governor. The legislation updates and modernizes the prior law (passed in 1980) to increase training standards for peace officers in New York State.

Peace officers now enforce a variety of local and State laws, are authorized to use force and make warrantless arrests and searches, and can be assigned to perform many of the same functions as police officers.
