BILL NUMBER:S7485

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the public officers law, in relation to residency requirements
for peace officers employed by Cornell University

PURPOSE:
To allow for Cornell University to hire
campus police
officers who live outside of Tompkins County.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Amends section 3 of the public officers law by
adding a new subdivision 59, allowing for a peace officer employed by
Cornell University to reside outside of Tompkins County, provided
that such person reside in the state of New York.

EXISTING LAW:
Existing law requires a person to be a resident of the
political subdivision or municipal corporation of the state for which
he or she shall be chosen, or within which his or her official
functions are required.

JUSTIFICATION:
In order to improve hiring, and allow
for greater
freedom of residency location, this legislation would allow for
Cornell University police officers to reside outside of Tompkins
County, and still perform their official functions at the university.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
