The hiring of full time police officers falls under the jurisdiction of the Manhattan Police Commission. The commission must follow a set of state required procedures when hiring an officer. Being Home Rule, the Village can enact additional requirements or criteria for full time police officers. This ordinance would add or change the following, Increase age from 21 to 23 for all applicants, sets maximum hiring age at 35 for all hires, and up to 45 years old with active duty military duty, 30 hours of college credit, this would be waived with honorable military discharge or 180 days military combat duty and Lateral transfers must have worked in an organization with a population of 5,000 as a full time police officer. This will have no impact on the current budget. Trustee Naughton is concern that someone that has complete collage, but who is 21 cannot apply.
