AN ACT to amend the penal law, in relation to auxiliary police and their

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

  Section  1.  Subdivision  b  of  section  265.20  of the penal law, as
amended by chapter 75 of the laws of 1983, and as relettered by  chapter
376 of the laws of 1995, is amended to read as follows:
  b.  Section 265.01 shall not apply to possession of that type of billy
commonly known as a "police baton" OR A COLLAPSIBLE "POLICE BATON" which
is twenty-four to twenty-six inches in length and no more than  one  and
one-quarter  inches in thickness by members of an auxiliary police force
[of a city with a population in excess of one  million  persons  or  the
county of Suffolk] when duly authorized by regulation or order issued by
the  police  commissioner of such city or such county respectively. Such
regulations shall require training  in  the  use  of  the  police  baton
including but not limited to the defensive use of the baton and instruc-
tion in the legal use of deadly physical force pursuant to article thir-
ty-five  of this chapter. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section
or any other provision of law, possession of such  baton  shall  not  be
authorized  when  used  intentionally to strike another person except in
those situations when the use of deadly physical force is authorized  by
such article thirty-five.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
