§ 216. Bureau  of  criminal  investigation.  1. The superintendent may
continue, within the  New  York  state  police,  a  bureau  of  criminal
investigation  and  assign to it members of the New York state police in
such numbers and appoint to it such investigative  specialists  in  such
numbers  as may be required for the purpose of preventing, investigating
and detecting  violations  of  the  criminal  laws  of  the  state,  and
conducting  such  other  investigations  as  may be provided for by law.
Members of the New York state police assigned to the bureau of  criminal
investigation  and  investigative specialists appointed to the bureau by
the superintendent shall be classified as (a) investigators; (b)  senior
investigators;  (c)  lieutenants;  (d) captains; provided, however, that
investigative  specialists  appointed  to   the   bureau   of   criminal
investigation  may be appointed as investigators or senior investigators
at salaries to be determined by the superintendent with the approval  of
the  director  of  the  budget  within the range from minimum to maximum
provided for in this section for the positions to which appointments are
made. Investigative specialists appointed  to  the  bureau  of  criminal
investigation shall be deemed to be members of the New York state police
upon  the filing by them of the constitutional oath of office, but shall
not be eligible for transfer  to  the  uniform  force  unless  otherwise
qualified  under  section  two  hundred  fifteen  of  this  article. The
superintendent may employ, from time to time, within the  appropriation,
such   skilled  experts,  scientists,  technicians  or  other  specially
qualified persons as he deems necessary to aid the bureau  and  the  New
York  state  police  in  preventing  or  detecting  crime,  apprehending
criminals, or preparing and presenting evidence  of  violations  of  the
criminal  laws  of  the  state.  Upon  request  of the head of any state
department, or of any police agency or of any district  attorney  within
the  state,  the  superintendent may assign to such requesting authority
members  of  the  state  police  attached  to  the  bureau  of  criminal
investigation  in  such  numbers  and for such periods of time as he may
deem necessary for the purpose of investigating and  detecting  felonies
committed  within  the  state.  Members  of the state police assigned or
appointed to the bureau  of  criminal  investigation  are  empowered  to
cooperate  with  departments  of  the  United  States  government in the
investigation of violations of the federal laws of the grade  of  felony
within  this state. The superintendent may, from time to time, establish
headquarters or stations in such localities of the  state  as  he  shall
deem most suitable for the efficient operation of the bureau of criminal
investigation.
  2.  (a)  There  shall be within the bureau of criminal investigation a
hate crime task force.  The  superintendent  shall  assign  to  it  such
personnel   as   may   be   required  for  the  purpose  of  preventing,
investigating, and detecting hate crimes  as  defined  in  article  four
hundred  eighty-five  and  sections  240.30 and 240.31 of the penal law.
When at all possible, the task force members shall  assist  and  support
other   law  enforcement  agencies  in  preventing,  investigating,  and
detecting offenses committed due to a perception or belief regarding the
race, color, national  origin,  ancestry,  gender,  religion,  religious
practice, age, disability or sexual orientation of a person.

(b) The task force shall issue reports and publications, in conjunction with the division of human rights and the division of criminal justice services, in order to inform persons of all available rights and remedies under the penal law as referenced in paragraph (a) of this subdivision, as well as prohibitions against discrimination because of age, race, creed, color, national origin, sexual orientation, military status, sex, disability, familial status, domestic violence victim status, genetic predisposition status, or marital status as those terms are defined by article fifteen of this chapter.
