BILL NUMBER: A1730
 
SPONSOR: Magee
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the penal law, in relation to aggravated harassment of peace officers or police officers   PURPOSE: To establish the crime of aggravated harassment of a police officer or peace officer and make such crime a class E felony.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The penal law is amended by adding a new section 240.33 establishing the crime of aggravated harassment of a police officer or peace officer.

The Legislature has a responsibility to do everything we can to protect our brave heroes, our police officers, from violent criminals. This legislation contributes to that premise.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011-12 S.2322 Passed Senate/ A.8099 Codes Committee. 2013-2014: A.5209   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the first of November next succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law.
