AN ACT to amend the social services law, in relation to duty  to  report
  incidents to 9-1-1 and the county district attorney's office

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

  Section 1. Section 491 of the  social  services  law,  as  amended  by
section 1 of part B of chapter 501 of the laws of 2012 and subdivision 4
as  amended  by  chapter  126 of the laws of 2014, is amended to read as
follows:
  S 491. Duty to report  incidents.  1.  (a)  Mandated  reporters  shall
report  allegations  of  reportable  incidents  to A 9-1-1 OPERATOR, THE
COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE AND the  vulnerable  persons'  central
register as established by section four hundred ninety-two of this arti-
cle and in accordance with the requirements set forth therein.
  (b)  Allegations of reportable incidents shall be reported immediately
to A 9-1-1 OPERATOR, THE  COUNTY  DISTRICT  ATTORNEY'S  OFFICE  AND  the
vulnerable  persons'  central  register  upon discovery. For purposes of
this article, "discovery" occurs when the mandated reporter witnesses  a
suspected  reportable  incident  or  when  another person, including the
vulnerable person, comes before the mandated reporter  in  the  mandated
reporter's  professional  or official capacity and provides the mandated
reporter with reasonable cause to suspect that the vulnerable person has
been subjected to a reportable incident. A report to the register  shall
include the name, title and contact information of every person known to
the  mandated  reporter  to  have  the  same information as the mandated
reporter concerning the reportable incident. [Nothing in  this  subdivi-
sion  shall be construed to prohibit a mandated reporter from contacting
or reporting to law enforcement or emergency services  before  or  after
reporting to the vulnerable persons' central register.]

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
