AN ACT to amend the town law, in relation to the employer's  ability  to
  suspend a police officer without pay pending disciplinary charges

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The second undesignated paragraph of  section  155  of  the
town  law,  as amended by chapter 310 of the laws of 1962, is amended to
read as follows:
  Any member of such department found guilty upon  charges,  after  five
days'  notice  and an opportunity to be heard in his defense, of neglect
or dereliction in the performance of official duty, or of  violation  of
rules  or  regulations  or  disobedience,  or of incompetency to perform
official duty, or of an  act  of  delinquency  seriously  affecting  his
general  character  or  fitness  for office, may be punished by the town
board having jurisdiction, by reprimand, by forfeiture  and  withholding
of  salary  or  compensation  for  a specified time not exceeding twenty
days, by extra tours or hours of duty  during  a  specified  period  not
exceeding  twenty days, by suspension from duty for a specified time not
exceeding twenty days and the  withholding  of  salary  or  compensation
during  such suspension, or by dismissal from the department. Such board
shall have the power to suspend,  without  pay,  pending  the  trial  of
charges,  any member of such police department IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUBDI-
VISION THREE OF SECTION SEVENTY-FIVE OF THE CIVIL SERVICE LAW.   If  any
member  of such police department so suspended shall not be convicted of
the charges so preferred, he shall be entitled to full pay from the date
of suspension. The conviction of a member of such police  department  by
the  town  board  shall be subject to review by the supreme court in the
judicial district in which such town is located in the  manner  provided
by  article  seventy-eight of the civil practice law and rules, provided
that the proceeding is commenced within thirty days  from  the  determi-
nation of such conviction by the town board.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
