BILL NUMBER:S1188

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation to designating dog
control officers as peace officers in the city of Cohoes

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To enable dog control officers in the
city of Cohoes to enforce provisions of the Agriculture and Markets
law relating to the treatment of animals.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section one adds a new subdivision 83
to section 2.10 of the criminal procedure law to designate dog
control officers as peace officers in the city of Cohoes when acting
pursuant to article 26 of the Agriculture and Markets law. However,
nothing in this subdivision shall authorize such officer to carry,
posses, repair or dispose of a firearm unless the appropriate license
has been issued.

JUSTIFICATION:
Several municipalities across the state have been
authorized to designate their dog and animal control officers as
peace officers for the purposes of enforcing article 26 of the
Agriculture and Markets law. This section of law deals with the
licensing, identification and control of dogs. Granting peace officer
status to Cohoes dog control officers is a cost-effective way to deal
with violations of laws protecting animals by allowing such officers
to deter potentially dangerous situations in a timely way and issue
tickets without delay. However, nothing in this proposal will
authorize these officers to carry or possess a firearm.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009/2010: S.3281/A.6844 Remained in the Senate Committee on Codes

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
