BILL NUMBER:S4048

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to authorizing the issuance of distinctive license plates to
auxiliary police or their spouses

PURPOSE: This bill authorizes the issuance of distinctive license
plates to members of an Auxiliary Police department or their spouses.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends the vehicle and traffic law
by adding a new section 404-x which authorizes the issuance of
distinctive license plates for members of an Auxiliary Police
department. The plate will bear the words "Auxiliary Police".

JUSTIFICATION: Auxiliary Police are highly trained volunteer police
officers charged with performing many duties including routine
patrols, traffic control, and serving as the "eyes and ears" of the
police department. They help to create the perception of police
omnipresence and are empowered to make arrests in many different
circumstances. These individuals are certified by New York State
Division of Criminal Justice Services and provide an invaluable
service to their local communities. This legislation recognizes the
brave commitment that Auxiliary Police Officers have made to serving
their community and their effort in combating crime and improving the
quality of life for all residents.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
