A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to transporting inmates in the custody of the department of correction to all criminal court appearances

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1.  Chapter 1 of title 9 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 9-146 to read as follows:

§ 9-146 Inmate court appearance transportation. a. By April 1, 2017 and upon gaining access to such database described in subdivision c of this section, the department shall, within 48 hours of admission of an inmate to the custody of the department, determine whether an inmate has any pending court appearances scheduled in New York city criminal court or the criminal term of New York state supreme court other than those appearances for cases for which such defendant is admitted to the custody of the department or that pertain solely to the payment of court surcharges.

b. In complying with subdivision a, the department shall:

1. notify the office of court administration that such inmate is in department custody upon determination of such court appearance, pursuant to subdivision a; and

2. provide, as required by the court, transportation for every inmate for all such court appearances.

c. The department shall make every effort to reach an agreement with the office of court administration to gain access by the department to a database maintained by the office of court administration related to court appearances scheduled in New York city criminal court or the criminal term of New York state supreme court. The requirements set forth in subdivisions a and b of this section shall apply only when the office of court administration reaches such agreement with the department.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
