This article shall be known as the "Police Jurisdiction Agreements with the City of Rochester."
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Genesee River fishing access site located at the northerly terminus of St. Paul Boulevard ("the DEC fishing site") is located within the political boundaries of the City of Rochester. Culver Road from the boundary line between the Town of Irondequoit and the City of Rochester (which line is 150 feet north of Norton Street) to Hoffman Road is also located within the political boundaries of the City of Rochester. Both the DEC fishing site and said section of Culver Road are surrounded by the political boundaries of the Town of Irondequoit, thereby creating the public perception that such areas are within the political boundaries of the Town of Irondequoit. Because of such perception, the Irondequoit Police Department is contacted by the public for police enforcement for criminal and traffic matters in these areas. The Town of Irondequoit and the City of Rochester desire to clarify the municipal/legal responsibility for these areas and to that end will enter into a municipal cooperation relative to the police jurisdiction for the DEC fishing site and have entered into a municipal cooperation agreement dated December 29, 1988, for said portion of Culver Road. These agreements will and do provide that the Irondequoit Police Department will have full police jurisdiction of these areas for all criminal matters, offenses, petty offenses and violations of all motor vehicle traffic matters.
All law enforcement officers of the Town of Irondequoit shall have authority to enforce violations of all offenses and petty offenses committed on the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Genesee River fishing access site located at the northerly terminus of St. Paul Boulevard situate within the political boundaries of the City of Rochester pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law § 71-0907, as amended or changed; Criminal Procedure Law §§ 1.20, Subdivision 34(d), 20.50, Subdivision 2, 120.50, 140.10 and 150.20, as amended or changed; and a municipal cooperation agreement between the Town of Irondequoit and the City of Rochester pursuant to Article 5-G of the General Municipal Law, as amended or changed.
All law enforcement officers of the Town of Irondequoit shall have the authority to enforce violations of all offenses and petty offenses committed on Culver Road from a point 150 feet north of Norton Street to Hoffman Road, which section of Culver Road is situate within the political boundaries of the City of Rochester pursuant to Criminal Procedure Law §§ 1.20, Subdivision 34(d), 20.50, Subdivision 2, 120.50, 140.10 and 150.20, as amended or changed; and a municipal cooperation agreement between the Town of Irondequoit and the City of Rochester dated December 29, 1988, pursuant to Article 5-G of the General Municipal Law, as amended or changed.
[Adopted 8-19-1997]
Commencing September 1, 1997, the Town of Irondequoit may appoint temporary police officers (special policemen) from time to time as the Town Board may determine their services necessary, and such special policemen shall be known as "auxiliary policemen."
Such auxiliary police shall have all the power and authority conferred upon constables by the general laws of the State of New York and such additional powers, not inconsistent with law, as shall be conferred upon them by the Town Board from time to time. It is the expressed intention of the Town Board that such police officers shall have the same power, authority, functions and duties as currently conferred on the Monroe County Civil Defense Auxiliary Police. Once appointed by the Town Board, such police officers shall be under the command and direction of the Chief of Police or his designee.
Such auxiliary police shall serve at the pleasure of the Town Board.
Such auxiliary police shall be volunteers and serve without compensation.
The town shall purchase uniforms and equipment that are necessary for such auxiliary police to carry out their duties as established by the Town Board.
The Chief of Police or his designee shall establish, with the approval of the Town Board, the standards, qualification, training, all rules and regulations, ranks and determinations of ranks for such police officers.
All present members of the Irondequoit auxiliary police are hereby appointed auxiliary police officers of the Town of Irondequoit subject to the foregoing.
In the event that the New York State Civil Service Commission determines that such police officers as appointed by this article are not members of an exempt class pursuant to Civil Service Law § 41, then the appointment of such police officers shall be terminated effective within 30 days after notification of said determination to the Town of Irondequoit.
