BILL NUMBER:S89

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law, in relation to creation of a uniform system
for the issuance of identification cards for retired members of the
state police

PURPOSE:
To provide official identification cards for retired members of the
state police force.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1. Creates uniform identification cards to be issued to
retiring state police members. The cards shall only be issued to
those retiring in good standing. Retirement in good standing means
retirement for purposes other than avoiding disciplinary actions that
may result in dismissal for cause. The superintendent of state police
is responsible for promulgating rules and regulations for obtaining
information necessary to issue identification cards.

JUSTIFICATION:
Retiring members of the state police force have worked decades in
service of their communities.
Issuing identification cards is a small token of commemoration of
their tireless efforts. A uniform, official state identification
card will allow a simple and reliable way of distinguishing former
state police officers.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011-12: S.7576-A/A.10300-A Passed Senate/Referred to Governmental
Operations

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall become
law.
