BILL NUMBER:S6197A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in
relation to granting certain federal law enforcement officers the
power to act as peace officers

PURPOSE:

To amend Section 2.15 of the Criminal Procedure Law to reflect a
change in title of certain federal law enforcement officers which
resulted from the restructuring of several federal agencies under the
Homeland Security Act of 2002 enacted by Congress.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends Subdivisions 3 and 7 of Section 2.15 of the Criminal
Procedure Law to reflect the change in title of certain federal law
enforcement officers formerly employed in the U.S. Customs Service,
Immigration and Naturalization Service and General Services
Administration.

EXISTING LAW:

The federal law enforcement officers covered by this bill were
previously known by different titles and are designated as federal law
enforcement officers in Subdivisions 3, 6, and 7 of

Section 2.15 of the Criminal Procedure Law.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Homeland Security Act of 2002, enacted by Congress and signed by
the President resulted in an organizational restructuring of various
federal agencies and transferred certain law enforcement personnel of
the US Customs Service, the Immigration and Naturalization Service and

General Se/vices) to a newly reorganized. US Customs and Border
Protection and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This bill
merely codifies the new titles of federal law enforcement officers who
are currently designated by their former titles in the Criminal
Procedure Law.
