BILL NUMBER:S4941

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in
relation to granting uniformed marine patrol officers in Cayuga county
peace officer status

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To authorize uniformed marine patrol
officers in Cayuga County to carry firearms.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends Section 2.10 of the criminal
procedure law by adding a new subdivision 84 to allow employees
appointed by the sheriff of Cayuga County, pursuant to their special
duties serving as uniformed marine patrol officers; provided, however
that nothing in this subdivision shall be deemed to authorize such
officer to carry, possess, repair or dispose of a firearm unless the
appropriate license has been issued pursuant to section 400.00 of the
penal law or to authorize such officer to carry or possess a firearm
except while on duty.

JUSTIFICATION: Cayuga Uniformed Marine Patrol requires peace officer
status in order to effectively patrol the waterways of New York. Years
previous have allowed the Marine patrol to operate in a ticketing
capacity without the interference of criminal activity. Recent changes
in crime trends have altered the safety of the marine patrols
activities. With violent crime on the rise in Upstate New York, calls
for service have increased the danger for the marine patrol. These
individuals put their safety at risk every time they are on patrol.
Properly equipping the marine patrol with the tools necessary to deter
criminal activity is of the utmost importance. Authorizing the Cayuga
Uniformed Marine Patrol to peace officer status will increase officer
safety and enhance their capabilities in protecting Cayuga County's
Waterways.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S.3119A of 2007

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
