BILL NUMBER:S3894A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in
relation to peace officer status of special deputy sheriffs appointed
by the sheriff of Chautauqua county within the grounds of and
properties owned by the Chautauqua Institution

PURPOSE:

To purpose of this legislation is to allow special deputy sheriffs,
who will be appointed by the Chautauqua County Sheriff, to act as
peace officers within the grounds of Chautauqua Institution

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This legislation would amend Section 2.10 of the Criminal Procedure
Law, by adding a new section 84 that would give the designation of
peace officer to certain employees of the Chautauqua Institution.

JUSTIFICATION:

This legislation would designate certain employees of the Chautauqua
Institution as peace officers.

The Chautauqua Institution employs their own police/security
department. These individuals are responsible for patrolling the
grounds and property owned by the Chautauqua Institution.

Over the years, a select group of officers employed by Chautauqua
Institution who have completed the municipal police training council
basic training courses have been deputized by the Sheriff of
Chautauqua County in order to give them arrest authority, and to
assist the Sheriff's Office when additional manpower is needed. There
has however, been some challenges to the authorities of those deputies
because they were specified as "emergency" special deputy sheriffs.

This legislation would grant peace officer status to those Chautauqua
Institution policemen appointed by the Sheriff of Chautauqua County as
special deputy sheriffs.

This legislation also establishes that the Chautauqua Institution, and
not the Sheriff's Office, will be responsible for any acts undertaken
by these peace officers. Further, their jurisdiction will only be
within the grounds of and properties owned by the Chautauqua
Institution.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
