Governor Andrew Cuomo amends Executive Order No. 8-147 relating to the deaths of civilians caused by law enforcement officers


Governor Andrew Cuomo amends Executive Order No. 8-147 relating to the deaths of civilians caused by law enforcement officers

On July 8, 2015 Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order No. 8-147 appointing the New York State Attorney General as a Special Prosecutor in matters relating to the deaths of unarmed civilians caused by law enforcement officers. The order also allows the Special Prosecutor to review cases where there is a question whether the civilian was armed and dangerous at the time of his or her death.

At the request of Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, Governor Andrew Cuomo has amended his Executive Order #8-147, dated July 8, 2015, to include an additional paragraph as the EO 8-147’s penultimate paragraph, to read as follows:

“FURTHER, the requirement imposed on the Special Prosecutor by this Executive Order shall include the investigation, and if warranted, prosecution:

“(a) of any and all unlawful acts or omissions or alleged unlawful acts or omissions by any law enforcement officer, as listed in subdivision 34 of §1.20 of the Criminal Procedure Law, arising out of, relating to or in any way connected with the death of Raynette Turner on July 27, 2015 while in the custody of the Mount Vernon Police Department.”
