Memo

BILL NUMBER:S3606

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation to exempting certain officers of the departments of correction and sanitation of the city of New York from training requirements for security guards

PURPOSE: Exempts certain officers of the departments of correction and sanitation of the city of New York from training requirements for security guards.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one amends paragraphs a, f and g of subdivision 4 of section 89-n of the general business law, paragraphs a and f as amended and paragraph g as added by chapter 221 of the laws of 2003, are amended and a new paragraph h is added.

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, the laws governing licensing of security guards require certain training requirements to ensure security guards are knowledgeable in the duties they will perform. However, certain persons who have the title of peace officer are either exempt from these training requirements or are granted waivers for these requirements.

In the current law, it specifies that a number of titles are exempt from the training requirements. These titles include police officers, NYS Correction Officers, Bridge and Tunnel officers, sergeants and lieutenants, uniformed court officers and court clerks with peace officer status, NYC sheriffs, With this current language in the law, only NYS uniformed correction personnel receive the exemption.

This legislation provides exemptions for all uniformed correction officers and sanitation police officers who are duly qualified as peace officers under New York State law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: S.7545 - Referred to Consumer Protection / A.10468 Referred to Economic Development

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
