BILL NUMBER:S3592

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to
granting members of the city's police force eligibility for retirement
and pension based on previous service as traffic enforcement agents

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Allow members of the NYC police force who were previously traffic
enforcement agents to receive service credit.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1. The Administrative code of the city of New York is amended
by adding a new section 13-633 to read as follows: §13-633 Transfer
of members of the New York city police department from traffic
enforcement to the police force. A. the time served as a member of
the city's traffic enforcement who has become a member of the police
force of the' city, whether by transfer or as a result of a
competitive exam and appointment, and who is still a member of the
police force of the city shall be included and counted as service in
the police force for the police department of the city in
determination of retirement and pension.

EXISTING LAW:
New.

Present law only allows this benefit to other law enforcement
personnel such as corrections. There are presently approximately 300
"Traffic Enforcement Agents" that have transferred to the NYC police
force. They should be afforded the same advantages and benefits that
their counterparts are afforded for the time they served.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.6038 (2010) - Held in Civil Service and Pensions

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
