Senator Joe Griffo has praised the State Assembly for acting on a bill this week that would increase the penalties for killing a police dog. Griffo co-sponsored the companion bill in the Senate which passed in March. While the bill has passed the Senate in previous years, this year marks the first time that the measure passed the Assembly. The concern drew more attention this spring, after the shooting death of an FBI-canine, "Ape," in Herkimer, during a police building-to-building search. Currently, under New York State law, those who harm a police canine can only be charged with a Class-A misdemeanor. This bill increases the penalties for killing or injuring all law enforcement and emergency services canines by making it a Class-D felony. The Senate is expected to send the bill to the Governor for his consideration.
