BILL NUMBER:S3606

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation to
exempting certain officers of the departments of correction and sanita-
tion of the city of New York from training requirements for security
guards

PURPOSE: Exempts certain officers of the departments of correction and
sanitation of the city of New York from training requirements for secu-
rity guards.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one amends paragraphs a, f and g of subdivision 4 of section
89-n of the general business law, paragraphs a and f as amended and
paragraph g as added by chapter 221 of the laws of 2003, are amended and
a new paragraph h is added.

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, the laws governing licensing of security
guards require certain training requirements to ensure security guards
are knowledgeable in the duties they will perform. However, certain
persons who have the title of peace officer are either exempt from these
training requirements or are granted waivers for these requirements.

In the current law, it specifies that a number of titles are exempt from
the training requirements. These titles include police officers, NYS
Correction Officers, Bridge and Tunnel officers, sergeants and lieuten-
ants, uniformed court officers and court clerks with peace officer
status, NYC sheriffs, With this current language in the law, only NYS
uniformed correction personnel receive the exemption.

This legislation provides exemptions for all uniformed correction offi-
cers and sanitation police officers who are duly qualified as peace
officers under New York State law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: S.7545 - Referred to Consumer
Protection / A.10468 Referred to Economic Development

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
