SECTION 105
Powers and duties of non-judicial personnel
Uniform City Court Act (UCT) CHAPTER 497, ARTICLE 1
§ 105. Powers and duties of non-judicial personnel.

(a) Clerks. The chief clerk and such other non-judicial personnel as
shall be authorized by law, rule or order shall each have the power to
administer oaths, take acknowledgments and sign the process or mandate
of the court.

(b) Enforcement officers; police officers. The enforcement officer of
a city court shall be the sheriff of the county in which such court is
located; provided, however, in each city where, on June thirtieth,
nineteen hundred eighty-eight, public officers thereof were authorized
to designate the enforcement officer of the city court established
therein, such public officers may continue to exercise such authority
and to designate another person or officer as enforcement officer in
lieu of the sheriff. The enforcement officers of the court shall perform
the same duties as are performed by sheriffs in the supreme court and
shall have, within their territorial jurisdiction and subject to any
limitations imposed by this act or by other provision of law, such power
to serve and execute the processes and mandates of the court as a
sheriff has with regard to the processes and mandates of the supreme
court. They shall also have, within their territorial jurisdiction, all
of the powers in criminal matters of a constable of a town in the state
of New York. It shall also be the duty of the police officers of the
city to execute all criminal processes and mandates of the court.
Neither an enforcement officer nor a police officer shall receive any
fee or compensation for the service or execution of any criminal process
or mandate issued out of the court.

(c) Records of enforcement officers. Each of the court's enforcement
officers shall keep a record of official acts performed by him upon or
in conjunction with the court's process or mandate. The rules may
prescribe the manner in which such records shall be maintained.
