TITLE OF BILL:
to amend the
public officers law, in relation to authorizing non-residents of the
county of Allegany to be appointed as peace officers by the society for
the prevention of cruelty to animals of such county
This bill authorizes non-residents of the county of Allegany to be
appointed as peace officers for the society for the prevention of
cruelty to animals for such county.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill amends subdivision 1 of section 3-b of the public officers
law to authorize non-residents of Allegany county to be appointed as
peace officers for the society for the prevention of cruelty to
Among its duties, many chapters of the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) investigate complaints of animal cruelty.
The SPCA serving Allegany County has its own cruelty investigation
unit, which registers its cruelty investigators as peace officers
with the NYS Department of Criminal Justice Services.
Because of its small population and location in a rural area, SPCA
serving Allegany County employs some cruelty investigators that live
outside Allegany County. However, as these investigators work but do
not live in Allegany County, by current law they cannot be appointed
as peace officers. This legislation would correct this issue and
allow these cruelty investigators to be appointed as peace officers.
This act shall take effect immediately.
