TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation to granting uniformed
members of the bureau of fire prevention of the town of Islip peace
officer status

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
This bill would grant peace officer status to members of the Town of
Islip's Bureau of Fire Prevention in matters arising under the laws
relating to fires, the extinguishment thereof and fire perils.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill amends Section 2.10 of the criminal procedure
law by adding a new subdivision B3 which establishes uniformed

officer status.

to cause fire. It would also provide training to the members in
evidence, searches and seizures.
