JUSTIFICATION:

Police  officers  all  across  this  state put their lives on the line
every day to protect the people of  New  York.  New  York  State  must
establish  laws and toughen existing laws that protect the police from
becoming victims of criminals. Far too many law  enforcement  officers
are   being  harassed,  injured,  even  killed  while  honoring  their
commitment to protect and serve this  state.  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.

2013-2014: A.5209

None.
