BILL NUMBER:S1477A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to designating state route 119 in the county of Westchester as the "Detective Michael Perry Memorial Highway"

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Designates state route 119 in the county of Westchester as the "Detective Michael Perry Memorial Highway"

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1: Establishes the portion of the state highway system to be designated as the "Detective Michael Perry Memorial Highway", which shall be all of the portion of the state Route 119 within the city of White plains beginning at the intersection of State Route 100 and state Route 119, and continuing in a generally southernly direction on state Route 119 and terminating at the intersection of Main Street and State Route 119.

Section 2: States that the commissioner of transportation shall provide for the installation and maintenance of adequate signing of the state highway system.

Section 3: This act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: Officer Michael Perry suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after chasing and arresting a man at a local mall near state route 119. He had called for assistance and chased the larceny suspect a short distance before placing him into custody.

Officer Perry transported the man to police headquarters for booking when he suddenly collapsed. He was transported to White Plains Hospital where he passed away a short time later. The suspect, who was a career criminal with over 300 arrests, was charged with resisting arrest and larceny.

A resident of Yorktown, Officer Perry had served with the white plains police Department for seven years and previously with the NYC Department of Environmental Protection police. He is survived by his wife, twin sons, parents, sister, and brother. On June 14, 2010/ Officer Perry was posthumously promoted to the rank of police Detective.

It is only proper that the State of New York honor the memory of Detective Michael Perry by designating state route 119 in White Plains as the Detective Perry Memorial Highway.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal impact associated with the installation and maintenance of adequate signing of the highway.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
