BILL NUMBER:S7553

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
relating to part-time police officer positions in the villages of Corfu
and LeRoy in Genesee county

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 This bill would provide that the position of part-time
police officer in the villages of Corfu and LeRoy will be deemed
non-competitive positions for purposes of Civil Service.

Section 2 provides that this act shall take effect immediately.

PURPOSE AND JUSTIFICATION:

Many years ago, Genesee County enacted
regulations making the position of part-time police officer a
competitive position within the county.
The regulations in surrounding counties, including Livingston, Orleans
and Wyoming Counties, provide that part-time police officer is a
non-competitive position. The Village of Corfu and the Village of
LeRoy have continuing difficulties finding candidates off the
competitive list who are available when needed for a part-time
position. These villages have small police departments, but need
additional personnel from time to time, such as when an officer is
serving in the military reserves or for seasonal demands. The
competitive list is for highly trained and specialized candidates who
often need over a year of training. Candidates on this list are often
not available on a timely basis and may not be interested in a
position for what may be only a few hours a week. Also, some of these
part time positions are effectively seasonal reflecting increased
need during certain times of the year. If the position was
non-competitive, these villages would be able to reach out to
part-time police officers in the surrounding counties who are in
noncompetitive positions, but experienced and well qualified, to fill
in needed coverage in LeRoy and Corfu. This bill is supported not
only by the Village of Corfu and the Village of LeRoy, but also
Genesee County, who recognizes the unique difficulties faced by these
two communities within the County.

EXISTING LAW:

Civil Service Law and Regulations provide that an election to make a
position competitive is done on a countywide basis.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.


EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
