BILL NUMBER:S1122

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the public officers law, in relation to residency requirements
for certain positions

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one amends section 3-b of the public
officers law by adding a new subdivision 5, providing that persons
employed or appointed as an auxiliary police officer or a special
deputy sheriff need not be a resident of the political subdivision or
municipal corporation that employed or appointed such person.

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation would provide more flexibility for
local governments in the employment or appointment of certain peace
officers, specifically auxiliary police officers and special deputy
sheriffs. Under current law, certain local governments are required
to have auxiliary police or special deputy sheriffs to
perform emergency civil defense functions.
Auxiliary police are volunteers. Because of the difficult economic
times across our state, many local governments are experiencing
difficulty in recruiting and retaining auxiliary police and special
deputy sheriffs.
Allowing local governments to accept these officers from neighboring
counties will help resolve this problem.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S7629/A10626 of 2011-12; Referred to Governmental Operations

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
