A02596 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A2596A

TITLE  OF BILL:  An act to amend the penal law, in relation to killing
or injuring a police animal

PURPOSE:  To protect police work dogs and horses who are killed  while
performing their duty.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:  Article 195 of the Penal Law is amended to add
a new section 195.05-a which would make intentionally killing a police
work dog or police work horse a Class E Felony.

JUSTIFICATION:  State and local law enforcement agencies and emergency
services have increasingly relied on the use of dogs for assistance in
crime solving, rescue and recovery operations. These animals serve the
people  of  New  York  State  through the use of their keen senses, In
addition, State and local police and the emergency services  invest  a
great  deal  of  time and resources in the training of these crime and
recovery assistants. The loss of a police work dog is not only a  loss
to the law enforcement departments but also the citizens of New York,
