A09819 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A9819A
 
SPONSOR: Magnarelli
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public authorities law, in relation to authorizing the Syracuse regional airport authority to provide and maintain an authority police department and a uniformed authority police force   PURPOSE: Amends the enabling legislation of the Syracuse Regional Airport Author- ity to authorize the authority to form its own police force to provide security at Hancock International Airport.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: Authorizes the Syracuse Regional Airport Authority to estab- lish its own police force to provide policing and security at the Airport. Section 2: Establishes the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority ("Authority") was created by statute in 2011 to improve and modernize the operation of the Hancock International Airport ("Hancock") in Syracuse, NY. To date, the Authori- ty has successfully managed the operation of the Airport and accom- plished its goal of better coordinating air travel in Central New York. Over the last decade, the Authority made extensive renovations and improvements to Hancock's terminal and infrastructure and successfully attracted new carriers to the Airport. Now, with a decade of operating experience, the Authority has identified a series of initiatives that will further improve operations and expand services at Hancock. Most critical, the Authority seeks authorization to establish its own police force. Currently, officers of the Syracuse Police Department ("SPD") patrol the Airport, including the TSA check- points. Due to ongoing staffing issues with SPD, it is becoming more difficult to properly staff the Airport. Allowing the Authority to establish its own police force will allow it to avoid future staffing conflicts with SPD. Currently, both the Port Authority of NY and NJ and the Niagara-Frontier Transit Authority have this authorization.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill (Amending Chapter 463 of 2011).   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.

     4  ized and empowered to provide and maintain an authority  police  depart-
     5  ment  and  a  uniformed  authority  police  force.  Each  member of such

    11  of employment of such police officers for the purposes of  the  criminal
    12  procedure  law  shall  be  limited  to  the buildings and grounds of the
    13  authority. Such department and force shall have the power, in and  about
    14  any  or  all  of  the  facilities owned, occupied and/or operated by the
    15  authority, to enforce and prevent violation of all laws. Nothing  herein
    16  shall  confer  upon  the authority police force or upon their collective
    17  negotiations representatives exclusive jurisdiction or  claim  over  the
    18  exercise  of  police  power or security work on behalf of the authority.
    19  Nothing herein shall limit the authority  from  continuing  to  rely  on
    20  local police for police services.  However, traditional police functions
    21  previously  performed  by  the  city of Syracuse police department shall
    22  continue to be performed by the authority police force.
    23    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
