Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session

From: Senator Kim L. Ward
To: All Senate members
Subject: Contracting with the State Police for Local Coverage
I am re-introducing legislation to allow municipalities to contract with the Pennsylvania State Police for police coverage.

This legislation would allow any municipality to enter into a contractual arrangement for state trooper services in exchange for compensation. Payment would be based on labor and benefit costs incurred by the State Police.

Revenue generated through these contracts would be deposited into a restricted revenue account and solely used for the specific services provided for in the service agreement. All state troopers assigned pursuant to these agreements would not be included in PSP’s authorized complement.

The legislation was SB 258 of last session and co-sponsors included Senators Scarnati, Langerholc, Tartaglione, Vulakovich, Wagner, White, Stefano, Costa, and Brewster.

Introduced as SB46
