BILL NUMBER:S6197

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in
relation to granting certain federal law enforcement officers the
power to act as peace officers; and to repeal subdivision 6 of section
2.15 of such law relating to Federal Protective Officers

PURPOSE: To amend Section 2.15 of the Criminal Procedure Law to
reflect a change in title of certain federal law enforcement officers
which resulted from the restructuring of several federal agencies
under the Homeland Security Act of 2002 enacted by Congress.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends Subdivisions 3 and 7 of
Section 2.15 of the Criminal Procedure Law to reflect the change in
title of certain federal law enforcement officers formerly employed in
the U.S. Customs Service, Immigration and Naturalization Service and
General Services Administration.

Section 2 repeals Subdivision 6 of Section 2.15 of the Criminal
Procedure Law.

EXISTING LAW: The federal law enforcement officers covered by this
bill were previously known by different titles and are designated as
federal law enforcement officers in Subdivisions 3, 6, and 7 of

Section 2.15 of the Criminal Procedure Law.

JUSTIFICATION: The Homeland Security Act of 2002, enacted by Congress
and signed by the President resulted in an organizational
restructuring of various federal agencies and transferred certain law
enforcement personnel of the US Customs Service, the Immigration and
Naturalization Service and the US Customs Federal Protective Service
(formerly part of the General Services) to a newly reorganized US
Customs and Border Protection and US Immigration and Customs
Enforcement. This bill merely codifies the new titles of federal law
enforcement officers who are currently designated by their former
titles in the Criminal Procedure Law.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S.7978, Passed similar bill in 2008 requested by
the US Department of Homeland Security. S. 2657 of 2009-2010 Referred
to Codes

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
