BILL NUMBER:S3894B

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 proper-
ty owned by the Chautauqua Institution.

Over the years, a select group of officers employed by Chautauqua Insti-
tution 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 speci-
fied 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.
