BILL NUMBER:S1122B

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 6, 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.
