A00352 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A352
 
SPONSOR: Bronson
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation to designating as peace officers certain employees of the Monroe county sheriff's office serving as court security deputies at Monroe county court facili- ties   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To authorize the inclusion of Monroe County Sheriff deputies as sheriff court security   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1.

Under pres- ent circumstances, however, the personnel deployed by the County Sheriff to provide court security do not qualify as peace officers under the Criminal Procedure Law. The Office of Court Administration supports this measure and recommends approval. They do so because its adoption will (i) enable compliance with the terms of our security contract with Monroe County (see Judici- ary Law section 39), and (ii) more importantly, guarantee that the indi- viduals who provide security for the courts in the County will receive training specifically appropriate to their jobs at lesser cost to the County. The Office of Court Administration takes this position with the under- standing that this measure is not intended to, nor does it, affect any existing rights of the individuals occupying titles to be affected by this measure to participate in certain benefits available under applica-
