BILL NUMBER:S5701

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in
relation to security services in the courts of the county of Steuben

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To authorize the inclusion of Steuben
County Sheriff deputies serving as court security deputies as peace
officers.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Subdivision 21 of section
2.10 of the criminal procedure law is amended by adding a new
paragraph g to include a deputy sheriff who is employed by the
sheriffs department of Steuben County to perform the delivery of
security services to the courts, as peace officers.

JUSTIFICATION: The Steuben County Sheriff's Court Security Division
has a staff of about 20 Officers that provides security for Courts and
Judges per contract with the Office of Court Administration (OCA).
These Officers, some of them armed are not listed in the Criminal
Procedure Law as Peace Officers. Due to this, they don't have the
authority to legally and effectively provide the necessary security
for the Court System and all those citizens that have contact with the
courts.

This legislation does not authorize those becoming peace officers
thereunder to carry, possess, repair or dispose of a firearm unless
the appropriate license therefore has been issued pursuant to section
400.00 of the penal law" will not in any way limit the Steuben County
Sheriffs present authority to arm these officers pursuant to County
Law Section 650-652 and Judiciary Law Section 400.

This legislation has been requested by the Steuben County Sheriff's
Office and is necessary to ensure Steuben County Sheriff Court
Security Officers can legally and effectively provide the security for
the court system that is needed to ensure courts safety for all those
involved.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect 30 days after it shall have
become a law.
