BILL NUMBER:S4057

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation
to the definition of the term "peace officer" as such term is used in
provisions of law relating to security guards

PURPOSE GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To remove the reference to "part-time
peace officer" in the Security Guard act and allow for the ability to
provide a training waiver to peace officers whose training currently
exceeds that of a security guard.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends subdivision 14 of section 89-f of the general
business law, as amended by chapter 634 of the laws of 1994 changing
the definition of peace officer by removing the full-time employment
requirement.

Section 2 sets an immediate effective date

JUSTIFICATION: Until 2009, there were different training requirements
for part-time and full-time peace officers, This change was justified
by the fact that part-time and full-time peace officers hold the same
responsibilities regardless of the hours they work, and therefore the
training requirements should be the same for both part-time and
full-time peace officers.

The Security Guard Act allows the Division of Criminal Justice
Services to issue a training waiver to a peace officer whose training
exceeds the training requirement for a security guard. Under the
current provision of law, auxiliary police, who are part-time peace
officers would not qualify for a waiver based on this definition.

This bill would remove the full-time employment requirement within the
definition of a peace officer, which would qualify auxiliary police
for a waiver from training requirements.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to State

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately
