BILL NUMBER:S7470

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation
to granting uniformed members of the bureau of fire prevention of the
town of Islip peace officer status

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill grants peace officer status
to members of the Town of Islip's Bureau of Fire Prevention.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends Section 2.10 of the criminal procedure law
by adding a new subdivision 84 which establishes uniformed members of
the Town of Islip Bureau of Fire Prevention as having peace officer
status.

JUSTIFICATION: Peace officers are able to investigate and prosecute
arson cases and take statements in the field and in depositions. This
bill would expand the powers of the members of the Town of Islip Bureau
of Fire Prevention to include those duties, as well as allow members to
inspect premises for violations of ordinances and conditions liable to
cause fire. It would also provide training to the members in evidence,
searches and seizures.
