Article I Powers of Police Chief
[Adopted 5-15-2001 by L.L. No. 3-2001]
In accordance with authority provided in § 209-m of the General Municipal Law, which reads, in pertinent part:
"2. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general, special or local law or of any county, City or village charter, the chief executive officer of a local government, whenever he deems that the public interest requires it, may request the chief executive officer of any other local government to detail, assign and make available for duty and use in the local government for which the request is made any part of the forces, equipment and supplies of the police department, police force or parkway police force of the local government of which the request is made. The chief executive officer of the local government of which the request is made is hereby authorized and empowered to grant the request so made.
3. A local government may, by local law, delegate to the Chief of Police of its police department or police force the powers hereby granted to a chief executive officer to request and grant police assistance."
the City Council hereby delegates to the Chief of Police the powers granted to a chief executive officer under that section.
In addition to and not in limitation of any powers delegated to the Chief of Police in § 36-1, the Chief of Police shall, as soon as practicable, inform the Mayor of any action taken by him pursuant to that delegation of powers.
The provisions of this article are hereby declared to be severable, and if any clause, sentence, paragraph, word, section or part of this article shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unconstitutional, illegal or invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph, word, section or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered.
