BILL NUMBER:S6249 REVISED 01/19/12

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the education law, in relation to authorizing the board
of trustees of the university of Rochester to designate security staff
as peace officers

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To authorize uniformed campus-security staff at the University of
Rochester to make arrests and carry safety equipment.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Adds Section 6311 to the education law in order to give the board of
trustees at the University of Rochester authority to appoint one or more
security personnel as peace officers as set forth in section 2.20 of the
criminal procedure law, after the officers have completed a necessary
training course. Permits said peace officers to carry pepper foam and a
baton if so authorized by the president of the University. Paragraph 2
outlines the manner of appointment of university peace officers.
Paragraph 3 outlines the manner of revocation of a peace officer's
designation as such. Paragraph 4 outlines the authority of university
peace officers in relation to other peace officers and police officers.
Paragraph 5 outlines limits of the legislation in reference to
collective bargaining agreements and other employee agreements.

Section 2 establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The University of Rochester, besides being the second largest university
in Monroe County by both enrollment and acreage, is also the largest
employer in the Greater Rochester Area and the sixth largest in New York
State. In order to ensure the safety of students and staff alike,
security personnel require access to the governmental criminal
information systems, the ability to carry safety equipment such as
batons and pepper spray (the University does not intend to arm its
security personnel with firearms), and the ability to make arrests.
Also, considering the University's operation as an academic medical
center, officers must be able to promptly intervene in health
emergencies to facilitate quick transport to health care staff. The
ability of University security personnel to act as peace officers would
also take much of the burden off of the Rochester City Police Department
and Monroe County Sheriff in enforcing the law and ensuring public
safety on campus, leaving them greater resources with which to patrol
the rest of the Greater Rochester area.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.

BILL NUMBER:S6249A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation to granting peace
officer status to certain security services officers
employed by the University of Rochester

PURPOSE OF THE BILL:
To grant certain University of Rochester security
services officers with peace officer powers subject to certain
conditions.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Sections 1 of the bill would amend the
Criminal Procedure Law to authorize the Board of Trustees of the
University of Rochester to designate as peace officers those security
services officers who shall satisfy the peace officer training
requirements and a course of instruction in public and private law
enforcement.
Designated peace officers would be required to abide by requirements
mutually agreed upon between the chief law enforcement officer of the
applicable local law enforcement jurisdiction. The bill would provide
that the peace officers would be limited to use such powers on
property owned, controlled or administered by the University of
Rochester and on a highway which crosses or adjoins such University
property when requested by the applicable chief law enforcement
officer, or beyond University property when in close pursuit after
witnessing an offense or crime or when transporting a person in
custody following an arrest. The bill would provide the applicable
municipalities with legal defense and indemnification and hold them
harmless for claims arising from the conduct of such peace officers
when carrying out their peace officer functions.

EXISTING LAW:
Criminal Procedure Law 2.10 authorizes an enumerated list
of government and non-government entities which may designate peace
officers.

JUSTIFICATION:
This bill would help improve public safety for the
thousands of students, faculty, staff and visitors to the many
educational institutions on the University of Rochester campus,
including the University of Rochester Medical Center, Security
officers designated as peace officers would be granted additional
arrest and investigative powers, and newly enhanced connections with
local law enforcement. Such peace officers would be subject to
requirements mutually agreed upon between the University and the
appropriate local law enforcement jurisdiction and would have to
complete the current minimum of 332 hours of additional training and
a course in public and private law enforcement.

College security officers have previously been granted peace officer
status at all community colleges, the City University of New York,
Cornell University, Ithaca college and Syracuse University.

BUDGET IMPLICATIONS:
None.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This bill shall take effect immediately after it shall
have become a law.
