NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5004
 
SPONSOR: Otis
  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 depart- ments. 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 eligi- ble 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.
