|Subject:||Blue Alert Act|
|When a law enforcement officer is killed, seriously injured, or missing while in the line of duty, there may be an imminent threat to public safety. The Blue Alert System is an important tool that could save lives by alerting the public about dangerous suspects while seeking their assistance in apprehending a dangerous individual. This system utilizes technologies employed by the established Amber Alert System and is currently implemented in 37 states.
That is why I plan on introducing the Blue Alert Act, which would establish a Blue Alert System under the Pennsylvania Amber Alert System Law. The system will be operated by the Pennsylvania State Police. As co-chair of the Blue Lives Matter Caucus, I believe we need to do all we can to protect those who serve and protect us.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation to ensure the protection of law enforcement and the public at-large.
Introduced as HB2807
