[Adopted 2-21-1992 as L.L. No. 1-1992 (Ch. 37 of the 1971 Code)]
The East Hampton Village Board of Trustees has reviewed § 209-m of the General Municipal Law with particular reference to the authority granted therein permitting a local government to request from or grant to another local government police assistance at a time of public emergency or an event of consequence requiring the adjoining of local police forces to assist each other and orchestrate their efforts for effective management of the emergency circumstance. By this article, the Village Board of Trustees seeks to take advantage of Subdivision 3 of § 209-m permitting the delegation of authority to request and grant police assistance to the Chief of Police of the local Department.
The Chief of Police of the Village of East Hampton Police Department is hereby delegated the powers otherwise provided the chief executive officer to grant and request police assistance under and pursuant to § 209-m, Subdivision 3, of the General Municipal Law.
