AN ACT to amend the executive law, in  relation  to  the  regulation  of
  security services

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  The executive law is amended by adding a new  section  718
to read as follows:
  S  718.  PRIVATE  SECURITY  SERVICES.    IN  ADDITION  TO THE TRAINING
REQUIREMENTS FOR SECURITY GUARDS SET FORTH IN  ARTICLE  SEVEN-A  OF  THE
GENERAL BUSINESS LAW, NO PRIVATE SECURITY GUARD COMPANY OR SERVICE SHALL
BE  EMPLOYED  TO  PROVIDE SECURITY SERVICES UNLESS SUCH PRIVATE SECURITY
GUARD COMPANY OR SERVICE HAS BEEN APPROVED TO PROVIDE SUCH  SERVICES  BY
THE  DIVISION OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND EMERGENCY SERVICES. SUCH APPROVAL
SHALL BE MADE UPON APPLICATION BY A PRIVATE SECURITY  GUARD  COMPANY  OR
SERVICE TO THE DIVISION IN THE MANNER AND FORM DIRECTED BY THE DIVISION.
APPROVAL  BY THE DIVISION SHALL BE BASED UPON CRITERIA DETERMINED BY THE
DIVISION TO BE NECESSARY TO ENSURE THE EFFECTIVE PROVISION  OF  SECURITY
SERVICES.    APPROVAL BY THE DIVISION SHALL BE EVIDENCED BY THE ISSUANCE
OF A PERMIT BY THE DIVISION TO THE PRIVATE  SECURITY  GUARD  COMPANY  OR
SERVICE.  SUCH  PERMIT  SHALL  BE RENEWABLE EVERY TWO YEARS. THE FEE FOR
SUCH PERMIT AND ANY RENEWAL PERMIT  SHALL  BE  A  REASONABLE  AMOUNT  AS
PROVIDED  BY  REGULATIONS  PROMULGATED BY THE DIVISION. A RENEWAL PERMIT
SHALL BE ISSUED ONLY IF SUCH PRIVATE SECURITY GUARD COMPANY  OR  SERVICE
MEETS  THE  CRITERIA  REQUIRED TO BE MET FOR THE ISSUANCE OF THE INITIAL
PERMIT.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
