NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
BILL NUMBER: A2285 SPONSOR: Pretlow
TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law and the executive law, in relation to authorizing a court to file non-family offense temporary orders of protection and orders of protection with the computerized registry established for such information   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To permit temporary orders of protection and orders of protection for non-family domestic violence offenses to be filed with the statewide computerized registry of orders of protection.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends section 530.13 of the Criminal Procedure Law to permit courts to direct that orders of protection and temporary orders of protection of non-family domestic violence offenses be filed with the statewide computerized registry of orders of protection. Section 2 amends section 221-a of the executive law directing the Super- intendent of State Police to include such orders of protection on the computerized registry.   EXISTING LAW: Existing law only allows orders of protection and temporary orders of protection for family offenses to be entered on the statewide computer- ized registry.   JUSTIFICATION: The landmark Family Protection and Domestic Violence Intervention Act of 1994 created a framework to promote a more aggressive response to domes- tic violence. A statewide computerized registry was established to expe- dite communication between Family and Criminal Courts and law enforce- ment agencies. Only orders of protection for domestic violence offenses covered under the statutory definition of family offense, however, are put on the registry. At least half of the victims of domestic violence are persons outside the statutory definition of family. Orders of protection and temporary orders of protection issued to protect these victims should also be included on the computerized statewide registry.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011/2012 A3517 referred to codes 2009/2010 A2602 referred to codes 1997-1998 - S.7303 - Referred to Codes Committee 1999-2000 - S.1012 - Passed Senate 01/13/15 referred to codes 01/06/16 referred to codes   LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: The first of October next succeeding the date on which this bill becomes a law.
