PA Sheriff’s Association to Testify at House Judiciary Committe Hearing on Powers and Duties Legislation

HARRISBURG – On Thursday the House Judiciary Committee will hear testimony from the Pennsylvania Sheriffs’ Association and other organizations about the benefits of authorizing Pennsylvania’s fully trained deputy sheriffs to perform certain law enforcement duties based on the needs of their communities.

The public hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday in Room 50 Irvis Office Building, Capitol Complex.

Rep. Craig Dally (R-Northampton County) is the sponsor of House Bill 466, which would give sheriffs’ offices the statutory authority to perform law enforcement duties as needed in their counties. According to the press release the legislation is very important to rural counties, which have fewer municipal police forces.
