Summary: Local Law 23 of 2013 requires the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) and the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) to report annually on the number of sexually exploited youth each agency has come into contact with over the course of the calendar year. Currently the report is due annually on January 1st. The bill would extend the deadline to March 1st annually in order to provide an adequate amount of time for DYCD and ACS to prepare the report. The bill would also amend the provision to require the report to be posted online and make a technical change to fix an error with the disaggregated age groups.

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to changing the date of an annual report related to sexually exploited children.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1.  Subdivision c of section 21-402 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended to read as follows:

c. Commencing on [January 1, 2014] April 30, 2016 and annually thereafter, no later than every [January] April 1, the commissioner, in consultation with the commissioner of the administration for children's services ("ACS") shall submit a yearly report to the speaker of the city council, and posted on the department’s and ACS’ websites, documenting the number of youth in contact with the department's runaway and homeless youth services or ACS who are referred as, self-report as, or who the department or ACS later determine to be sexually exploited children, disaggregated by age utilizing the following ranges under 12 years old, 12-[16] 15 years old, 16-18 years old and over 18 years old, by gender and by whether such children had contact with the department or ACS. The department and ACS shall also determine and document in such report the number of such children identified as having received services from both the department and ACS. Such report shall also include a description of the services provided by the department and ACS to meet the needs of youth who are or have been sexually exploited children including, but not limited to the number of beds designated for such children and the types of mental health and health services provided to such children. Such report shall also include the department's and ACS's methods for collecting data regarding the number of sexually exploited children. Nothing herein shall require the department or ACS to share information that identifies such children. No information that is required to be reported pursuant to this section shall be reported in a manner that would violate any applicable provision of federal, state or local law relating to the privacy of such children's information.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
