Authority police force
Public Authorities (PBA) CHAPTER 43-A, ARTICLE 8, TITLE 34
§ 2799-ggg-1. Authority police force. The authority is hereby
authorized and empowered to provide and maintain an authority police
department and a uniformed authority police force. Each member of such
uniformed police force shall be a "police officer" as that term is
defined in paragraph (e) of subdivision thirty-four of section 1.20 of
the criminal procedure law, with all of the powers of such police
officers thereunder and subject to the same jurisdictional provisions on
the exercise of that power as set forth in such law. The geographical
area of employment of such police officers for the purposes of the
criminal procedure law shall be limited to the buildings and grounds of
the authority. Such department and force shall have the power, in and
about any or all of the facilities owned, occupied and/or operated by
the authority, to enforce and prevent violation of all laws. Nothing
herein shall confer upon the authority police force or upon their
collective negotiations representatives exclusive jurisdiction or claim
over the exercise of police power or security work on behalf of the
authority. Nothing herein shall limit the authority from continuing to
rely on local police for police services. However, traditional police
functions previously performed by the city of Syracuse police department
shall continue to be performed by the authority police force.
