BILL NUMBER:S7872

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to
broadening the focus of the New York state committee for the
coordination of police services to elderly persons

PURPOSE: This bill would broaden the committee's study and evaluation
of programs beyond only triad programs.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. This section removes specific references to triad programs
as the response and program to be studied by the committee. Triad
programs are included as an option, but language is added to allow for
additional programs to be considered.

Section 2. Effective Date.

JUSTIFICATION: The problem of crimes against the elderly is growing
and ever-changing. The Committee for the Coordination of Police
Services to Elderly Persons should be able to consider new approaches
and programs in addition to current ideas. Crimes are becoming more
widespread and more sophisticated, so it is important to adapt our
responses as well to changing times.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
