  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1.  Section  14-111 of the administrative code of the city of

  C.  WHEN A FIRST GRADE POLICE OFFICER SHALL HAVE SERVED IN THE RANK OF
POLICE OFFICER FOR A PERIOD OF TWENTY-FIVE YEARS, HE OR SHE  SHALL  HAVE
THE  SAME RIGHTS IN RESPECT TO THE POLICE PENSION FUND AS A POLICE OFFI-
CER DESIGNATED TO ACT AS DETECTIVE OF THE THIRD  GRADE  WHO  SHALL  HAVE
SERVED AS SUCH FOR A PERIOD OF TIME AGGREGATING TWO YEARS AT THE HIGHEST
SALARY RATE FOR A DETECTIVE OF THE THIRD GRADE.

below:
  * When a first grade police officer achieves 25 years of service, s/he
shall be entitled to the same base pay for the  purpose  of  pensionable
earnings  as  a detective of the third grade who served in such position
for a period of 2 years at the highest pay rate for that position.

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