    NYS Court Officers are Peace Officers. There are two academies. Classes are 14 weeks (at least they were when I retired in '07). Eventually all courts in the State will be staffed by Court Officers. The takeover process is being slowed down by the budget crisis. Court officers are the only Peace Officers with "Stop and Frisk" powers. Court Officers are authorized to issue traffic summonses and parking tickets.

    and December 12, 2009, with the opening of filing anticipated for May 2009. There is a $30 non refundable filing fee to take the exam.

    This test will most likely be held across the State. Downstate there will probably be a number of sites in NYC and the surrounding counties.

    With the staffing levels being hit by the budget crunch, I expect that there will be a significant number of open slots once everything gets worked out. There's a large number of Officers that came on the job during the expansion in the '70s. They are reaching retirement age (and desire). And OCA will resume taking over the rest of the upstate Courts.

    It is stunning that we have never even heard the word "buyout" during this so called financial crisis. Last buy-out killed the lines of whoever retired.

    Court Officer lines weren't really "killed". OCA established a "fill ratio" for empty lines. Believe it was someplace between 50% & 75%, also hiring was delayed for a number of months. I wouldn't be surprised if a "buyout" was included in this year's budget. Probably be something like the one proposed by the Assembly in 2006. It would target those in Tiers 3 & 4.

    It's not a bad gig being a Correction Officer. But I never planned on doing it for the full 25

    The test is given approximatlely every 4 years. The list has a self life of the same duration and could be extended until the new list is certified.

    Just a question, not a shot or anything. Lately 8 of 10 trainees are former state (some city) C.O. s. It has to be more than nights and weekends off.

    Trust me I read you, but I talk to our people who were formerly C.O.s and they talk about having a good gig and all that, good people etc. But the reality is they worked 15 minutes from their facility had a good bid and they gave it all up to work an hour away with a slim hope of transfer (we have people waiting 10 years for a transfer) and at the bottom of the barrel. Money isn't everything.
