Memo

BILL NUMBER:S3894A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation to peace officer status of special deputy sheriffs appointed by the sheriff of Chautauqua county within the grounds of and properties owned by the Chautauqua Institution

PURPOSE:

To purpose of this legislation is to allow special deputy sheriffs, who will be appointed by the Chautauqua County Sheriff, to act as peace officers within the grounds of Chautauqua Institution

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This legislation would amend Section 2.10 of the Criminal Procedure Law, by adding a new section 84 that would give the designation of peace officer to certain employees of the Chautauqua Institution.

JUSTIFICATION:

This legislation would designate certain employees of the Chautauqua Institution as peace officers.

The Chautauqua Institution employs their own police/security department. These individuals are responsible for patrolling the grounds and property owned by the Chautauqua Institution.

Over the years, a select group of officers employed by Chautauqua Institution who have completed the municipal police training council basic training courses have been deputized by the Sheriff of Chautauqua County in order to give them arrest authority, and to assist the Sheriff's Office when additional manpower is needed. There has however, been some challenges to the authorities of those deputies because they were specified as "emergency" special deputy sheriffs.

This legislation would grant peace officer status to those Chautauqua Institution policemen appointed by the Sheriff of Chautauqua County as special deputy sheriffs.

This legislation also establishes that the Chautauqua Institution, and not the Sheriff's Office, will be responsible for any acts undertaken by these peace officers. Further, their jurisdiction will only be within the grounds of and properties owned by the Chautauqua Institution.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
