  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The vehicle and traffic law is  amended  by  adding  a  new
section 399-p to read as follows:
  S  399-P.  POLICE  INFORMATION  INTERFACE.   1. THE COMMISSIONER SHALL
ESTABLISH A PROGRAM TO ALLOW THE DEPARTMENT TO INTERFACE  WITH  THE  NEW
YORK  STATE  POLICE  INFORMATION NETWORK (NYSPIN), SUCH THAT INFORMATION

STANDARDS.
  2. THE INTERFACE SHALL AUTOMATICALLY CONDUCT A REAL-TIME COMPARISON OF
TRANSACTIONAL INFORMATION ENTERED INTO DEPARTMENT DATABASES AND  CURRENT
WARRANT  INFORMATION  CONTAINED IN NYSPIN. WHEN SUCH COMPARISON YIELDS A
CORRELATION SUFFICIENT TO BE CONSIDERED A MATCH, AS  DETERMINED  BY  THE
DIVISION  OF  STATE  POLICE,  A  COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM SHALL AUTOMATICALLY
TRANSMIT ALL DEPARTMENT INFORMATION PERTINENT TO THE WARRANT TO STATE OR
LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT. THE COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM SHALL NOT, AT  ANY  TIME,
ALERT  THE  DEPARTMENT  OR ITS EMPLOYEES OF THE RESULTS OF THE INTERFACE
PROCESS.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets

  4. OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF THE INTERFACE  SHALL  BE  BY  A  JOINT
