AN ACT to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation to providing for
  a  refresher course for peace officers who have had an interruption in
  continuous service for less than ten years

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

  Section  1.  Subdivision  6  of section 2.30 of the criminal procedure
law, as amended by chapter 491 of the laws of 2010, is amended  to  read
as follows:
  6.  A certificate attesting to satisfactory completion of the training
requirements imposed under this section awarded to any peace officer  by
the executive director of the municipal police training council pursuant
to this section shall remain valid:
  (a) during the holder's continuous service as a peace officer; and
  (b)  for  two  years  after  the date of the commencement of an inter-
ruption in such service where the holder had, immediately prior to  such
interruption,  served  as  a peace officer for less than two consecutive
years; or
  (c) for four years after the date of the  commencement  of  an  inter-
ruption  in such service where the holder had, immediately prior to such
interruption, served as a peace officer for  two  consecutive  years  or
longer; OR
  (D)  WHERE  THE  HOLDER, WHOSE INTERRUPTION IN CONTINUOUS SERVICE AS A
PEACE OFFICER OR AS A POLICE OFFICER DOES  NOT  EXCEED  TEN  YEARS,  HAS
SATISFACTORILY  COMPLETED AN APPROVED PEACE OFFICER REFRESHER COURSE, AS
PRESCRIBED BY THE MUNICIPAL POLICE TRAINING COUNCIL.
  As used in this subdivision, the  term  "interruption"  shall  mean  a
period  of  separation  from  employment as a peace officer by reason of
such officer's leave of absence,  resignation  or  removal,  other  than
removal for cause.
  S  2.  This  act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall
have become a law; provided, however, the commissioner of  the  division
of  criminal  justice  services is authorized and directed to promulgate
any rules and regulations necessary to implement the provisions of  this
act on or before such effective date.
