BILL NUMBER:A8643

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to require the office of the mayor of a city
with a population of one million or more to produce an annual report
listing all compacts, memoranda of understanding or other agreements
pertaining to any additional police services and their associated
cost, to nullify certain contracts entered into by or on behalf of the
New York city housing authority and to require certain reports by the
New York city housing authority to the legislature

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL:

This bill would require transparency on "additional policing" provided
to private businesses by NYPD and require NYCHA to relieve itself from
its obligations under the 1994 MOO which has led to NYCHA being
charged over $70 million a year for "additional police services."

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section One states that in cities with a population of one million or
more, the office of the mayor is required to produce a report listing
any compacts that to ongoing or have been entered into within the
preceding 24 months to provide additional police services.

Section Two renders any compact entered into between January 1, 1994
and January 1, 1996 between the New York City housing authority and
the New York City police department or the office of the mayor on
behalf of the New York City Police Department nullified. However, if
the New York City housing. authority is unable to nullify such compact
they are required to report back to the legislature in writing 120
days after the effective date of this act on how it is bound and for
how long, what efforts it has taken to be relieved from its
obligations and must report to the legislature every subsequent thirty
days until it is relieved from its obligations.

Section three provides a definition for "additional police services".

Section four states that this act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:

There is a considerable lack of clarity around additional police
services supplied by the New York City Police Department.  This bill
would require that the City provide information on all agreements to
provide additional policing -including through the Paid Detail Unit,
an NYPD division that provides off-duty police personnel, in uniform,
to private companies for an hourly fee. The city would be required to
annually report the cost (to the department and the recipients),
services provided, and policies for off-duty personnel in uniform (ed.
on the use of racial profiling) of additional police services.

In addition this bill would require NYCHA to relieve itself from its
obligations under the 1994 MOD between the City and NYCHA for
additional police services so that NYCHA is no longer the only
residential landlord in the city required to pay for "additional"
police services. Public housing residents should not have to
essentially pay double for policing, while large department stores and


financial institutions apparently have additional NYPD personnel in
their stores, under policies shrouded in secrecy.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Minimal fiscal impact.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.

         memoranda of understanding or other agreements pertaining to any addi-

         contracts  entered  into  by or on behalf of the New York city housing
         authority and to require certain reports by the New York city  housing

    4  entered into within the preceding 24 months to provide additional police
    5  services.  The  annual  report shall include any policies and procedures
    6  that regulate additional police services, a summary  of  all  additional

   12  City police department shall be deemed nullified by this section. If the
   13  New  York  City housing authority is unable to nullify any such compact,
   14  the New York City housing authority must report back to the  legislature
   15  in  writing  within 120 days after the effective date of this act on how
   16  it is bound and for how long, what  efforts  it  has  undertaken  to  be
   17  relieved  of  its  obligations,  and a plan to negotiate relief from its
   18  obligations. In such case, the New York  City  housing  authority  shall
   19  make an ongoing good faith effort to relieve itself from the obligations
   20  of  such compact and is required to report to the legislature in writing
   21  on progress on negotiating relief every 30 days until it is relieved  of
   22  its obligations.
