BILL NUMBER:S3136 REVISED 04/04/11

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize certain individuals to take the competitive civil service
examination and be placed on the eligible list for appointment as a
full-time police officer for the village of Greene and the village of
Oxford, county of Chenango

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This legislation authorizes the State of New York to allow Ronald
Martin, of the Village of Oxford in Chenango County, and Norman L.
Shaffer, of the Village of Greene in Chenango County exemption from
the age requirements of Civil Service Law Section 58.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Civil Service Law requires that a full-time competitive police
officer be no less than twenty years, and no more than thirty-five
years of age. This limits the ability of small municipalities such as
Green and Oxford to locate and hire the best full-time police
officers available.

The Villages of Oxford and Greene currently have open full-time
competitive police officer positions.

Ronald Martin (Oxford) and Norman L. Shaffer, Jr. (Greene) are police
Academy graduates. Both men are currently serving as part-time police
officers with their respective village departments and would qualify
as top-tier candidates for the available positions, were they not
above the age restrictions. Mr. Martin and Mr. Shaffer have
proven themselves as exceptional police officers and are in
great physical shape.

Both men have reputations that have earned them the full support of
all the Village Boards along with the Chief of police in the Villages
of Oxford and Greene, yet the villages are unable to allow these
part-time officers positions with full-time status. It has therefore
been requested by the two villages that this legislation be enacted
upon by the State in order to afford them the opportunity to be
exempt from the age requirements of Civil Service Law Section 58, to
allow them to take the Civil Service Exam and enter the pool of
qualified applicants for the open positions.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010: Referred to Civil Service and Pensions

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
