BILL NUMBER:S6000

TITLE OF BILL: An act to require the office of the mayor of a city
with a population of one million or more to produce an annual report
listing all compacts, memoranda of understanding or other agreements
pertaining to any additional police services and their associated
cost, to nullify certain contracts entered into by or on behalf of the
New York city housing authority and to require certain reports by the
New York city housing authority to the legislature

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL:

This bill would require transparency on "additional policing" provided
to private businesses by NYPD and require NYCHA to relieve itself from
its obligations under the 1994 MOU which has led to NYCHA being
charged over $70 million a year for "additional police services."

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section One states that in cities with a population of one million or
more, the office of the mayor is required to produce a report listing
any compacts that re ongoing or have been entered into within the
preceding 24 months to provide additional police services.

Section Two renders any compact entered into between January 1, 1994
and January 1, 1996 between the New York City housing authority and
the New York City police department or the office of the mayor on
behalf of the New York City Police Department nullified. However, if
the New York City housing authority is unable to nullify such compact
they are required to report back to the legislature in writing 120
days after the effective date of this act on how it is bound and for
how long, what efforts it has taken to be relieved from its
obligations and must report to the legislature every subsequent thirty
days until it is relieved from its obligations.

Section three provides a definition for "additional police services".

Section four states that this act shall take effect immediately

JUSTIFICATION:

There is a considerable lack of clarity around additional police
services supplied by the New York City Police Department.

This bill would require that the City provide information On all
agreements to provide additional policing -- including through the
Paid Detail Unit, an NYPD division that provides off-duty police
personnel, in uniform, to private companies for an hourly fee. The
city would be required to annually report the cost (to the department
and the recipients), services provided, and policies for off duty
personnel in uniform (eg. on the use of racial profiling) of
additional police services.

In addition this bill would require NYCHA to relieve itself from its
obligations under the 1994 MOU between the City and NYCHA for
additional police services so that NYCHA is no longer the only
residential landlord in the city required to pay for "additional"


police services. Public housing residents should not have to
essentially pay double for policing, while large department stores and
financial institutions apparently have additional NYPD personnel in
their stores, under policies shrouded in secrecy.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Minimal fiscal impact.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
