BILL NUMBER:S3713

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the administrative code of the city of
New York, in relation to establishing maximum age requirements for New
York city correctional officers

PURPOSE: To establish maximum age requirements for New York City
correctional officers.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one amends the Administrative Code of the City of New York by
adding a new section 9-177.2. Subsection (a) provides that the Commis-
sioner of Correction shall not appoint any new a person to a position of
uniformed correction officer if the person who is under twenty-one years
of age or over thirty-five years of age on the date of appointment.

Subsection (b) provides that that nothing in this section shall limit or
affect the existing authority of the Mayor and Commissioner to appoint
non-uniformed persons whose duties include overall security of the
Department to positions of authority.

Section two provides that act shall take effect on the thirtieth day
after it shall have become a law and shall apply to appointments estab-
lished on or after such date.

York does not prescribe age requirements for appointment to a uniformed
correction officer position.

JUSTIFICATION: Correction officers are part of the uniformed services
of New York and, thus, the age requirements should be the same as those
for police officers.
