House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: January 25, 2017 11:08 AM
From: Representative Jim Marshall
To: All House members
Subject: Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs Legislation

I plan to introduce legislation to amend Title 42 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statues, the Judicial Code, to vest sheriffs and deputy sheriffs with the same power to enforce the laws of the Commonwealth as currently possessed by municipal police officers.

For many years and through numerous court cases, the authority, powers and duties of the Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs of Pennsylvania have been questioned and challenged. This proposal will delineate those issues.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Introduced as HB466
