NYSPEC Junior Society fundraiser "Under the Stars" 9-27-19 at penthouse of The Standard Hotel NYC
The NYSPCC runs several programs, including parenting skills, trauma recovery for abused children, trauma recovery for child welfare officers dealing with harrowing cases, professional training in identifying and reporting abuse and neglect, and visitation programs allowing children to visit their non-custodial parents in safe environments.
**While acting pursuant to their duties, individuals performing investigatory tasks for the NYSPCC hold New York State peace officer status. This means that these individuals can perform law enforcement-based investigations, make arrests, carry firearms (if so authorized by the NYSPCC and properly trained according to New York State law enforcement standards), and use physical and/or deadly force.**
