BILL NUMBER:S7629

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public officers law, in relation to residency requirements for certain positions

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends section 3-b of the public officers law by adding a new subdivision 5, providing that persons employed or appointed as an auxiliary police officer or a special deputy sheriff need not be a resident of the political subdivision or municipal corporation that employed or appointed such person.

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: This legislation would provide more flexibility for local governments in the employment or appointment of certain peace officers, specifically auxiliary police officers and special deputy sheriffs. Under current law, certain local governments are required to have auxiliary police or special deputy sheriffs to perform emergency civil defense functions. Auxiliary police are volunteers. Because of the difficult economic times across our state, many local governments are experiencing difficulty in recruiting and retaining auxiliary police and special deputy sheriffs. Allowing local governments to accept these officers from neighboring counties will help resolve this problem.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
