BILL NUMBER: S5302

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation to granting
peace officer status to animal control officers employed by the county
of Schuyler

PURPOSE :
This bill would grant animal control officers employed by Schuyler
County peace officer status.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1 of the bill amends section 2.10 of the criminal procedure
law by adding a new subdivision 83 authorizing animal control officers
employed by Schuyler County to be given peace officer status.

Section 2 of the bill provides that the bill shall take effect
immediately.

JUSTIFICATION :
This legislation comes at the request of the Office of the Sheriff of
Schuyler County. The Animal Control Officer in Schuyler County is an
essential position investigating animal cruelty complaints as well as
issuing summonses for violations of state and local laws. When the
current Animal Control Officer was hired in Schuyler County it was
assumed that this individual was a Peace Officer under the Criminal
Procedure Law. This legislation remedies said oversight by granting
Animal Control Officers in Schuyler County Peace Officer status.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately.
