                STATE OF NEW YORK
                               2017-2018 Regular Sessions
                   IN ASSEMBLY
                                    January 12, 2017
        Introduced   by   M.   of   A.  MOSLEY,  SIMON,  RICHARDSON,  SEPULVEDA,
          PEOPLES-STOKES  --  read  once  and  referred  to  the  Committee   on
        AN  ACT  to  amend the correction law, in relation to allowing telephone
          calls for inmates after transfer from correctional facilities

          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section  1.  Subdivision  1  of  section  23 of the correction law, as
     2  amended by section 5 of subpart B of part C of chapter 62 of the laws of
     3  2011, is amended to read as follows:
     4    1. The commissioner shall have the power to transfer inmates from  one
     5  correctional  facility to another. Whenever the transfer of inmates from
     6  one correctional facility to another shall be ordered by the commission-
     7  er, the superintendent of the facility from which the inmates are trans-
     8  ferred shall take immediate steps to make  the  transfer.  The  transfer
     9  shall  be  in  accordance  with rules and regulations promulgated by the
    10  department for the safe delivery  of  such  inmates  to  the  designated
    11  facility.  Within twenty-four hours of arriving at the facility to which
    12  an inmate is transferred, he or she shall be allowed to  make  at  least
    13  one personal phone call, except when to do so would create an unaccepta-
    14  ble  risk  to  the  safety and security of inmates or staff. If security
    15  precautions prevent the inmate from making such  call,  a  staff  member
    16  designated  by the superintendent of the facility shall make a call to a
    17  person of the inmate's choice unless the inmate declines to have such  a
    18  call made.
    19    §  2.  This  act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall
    20  have become a law.
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
