An act to amend the executive law, in relation to requiring internet
accessibility to videos and photographs of certain unsolved robberies


To create, on the web site of the New York State Division of Criminal
Justice Services, a listing of all the video and/or photographs, when
it is available, from every unsolved armed robbery in New York State.


Section 1 of the bill states that the home page of the Division of
Criminal Justice Services must include video and/or photographs, when
available, from every unsolved armed robbery occurring in New York

Section 2 -- Effective Date.


When solving violent crimes, law enforcement's best resource is often
average citizens. The success and the popularity of the long-running
television show "America's Most Wanted" proves that when regular
people and law enforcement work together, dangerous criminals can be
brought to justice.

Not long ago, a local law enforcement agency in Kentucky created a web
site containing video and/or photographs from every unsolved armed
robbery that occurred in the jurisdiction. This bill seeks to
establish something similar for New York State.

Listing all the available video and/or photographs from New York
State's unsolved armed robberies on a single web site will make it
easier for the citizens of this state to help law enforcement bring
these very dangerous criminals to justice.


S.6337/A.10618 of 2006
S.2058/A.720 of 2007-2008



January 1 next succeeding the date upon which this act shall have
become a law.
