uniformed marine patrol officers and uniformed court security officers
employed by the Seneca County Sheriff's Office.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section one amends section 2.10 of the Criminal Procedure Law by
adding a new subdivision 84, designating uniformed marine patrol
officers employed by the Seneca County Sheriffs Office as peace
officers.

Section one also amends section 2.10 of the Criminal Procedure Law by
adding a new subdivision 85, designating the uniformed court security
officers employed by the Seneca County Sheriffs Office as peace

Sheriffs Office. Similar legislation has been enacted to extend peace
officer status to marine patrol and security personnel employed by
various counties and local governments across the State.
