BILL NUMBER:S4456

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation
to eliminating the requirement under the security guard act of
full-time employment for peace officers

PURPOSE:

To allow Auxiliary Police, who are part-time Peace Officers, to
qualify for a security guard training waiver.

SUMMARY:

Section 1. Subdivision 14 of Section 89-f of the General Business Law
as amended by Chapter 634 of the laws of 1994, is amended to eliminate
the requirement of full-time employment for Peace Officers.

JUSTIFICATION:

Auxiliary Police are volunteer, part-time Peace Officers. Under
current law, only full-time Peace Officers qualify for a training
waiver to become a Security Guard. The requirement to be employed
full-time as a Peace Officer dates back to when the training for
part-time Peace Officers was different than the training for full-time
Peace Officers. However, training for Peace Officers is now the same
for all Peace Officers as is found in the Criminal Procedure Law,
subdivision one of section 2.30. The training of all Peace Officers
exceeds the training requirements for a Security Guard. By eliminating
the requirement of full-time employment for Peace Officers, this bill
would allow the Division of Criminal Justice Services to issue the
same training waiver to become a Security Guard, to part-time Peace
Officers that is currently issued to full-time Peace Officers.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no fiscal impact to any government.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately
