BILL NUMBER:A5004

TITLE  OF  BILL:    An  act to amend the executive law, in relation to
information on persons applying to be an auxiliary police officer

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill authorizes the Division  of  Criminal  Justice  Services  to
perform  background  checks  on  those  applying  as  auxiliary police
officers in local police departments. Amends Section 837-c subdivision
b of  the  executive  law  to  allow  police  departments  to  forward
descriptive  data  and fingerprints of candidates for auxiliary police
duty to D.C.J.S. for processing

JUSTIFICATION:
Section 837-c of  the  executive  law  currently  allows  D.C.J.S.  to
perform  background  checks  on  persons  applying for employment with
police departments. The language of this section,  however,  currently
makes  no  provision  for  similar  checks  to be performed on persons
applying as auxiliary  police.  Including  auxiliary  police  officers
among  those  eligible  for  background checks by D.C.J.S. would allow
police departments to properly screen candidates for auxiliary police.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S3854 (2011-12)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to State. The cost is borne by local governments  requesting  the
background checks.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
