Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: December 18, 2018 10:18 AM
From: Senator David G. Argall
To: All Senate members
Subject: State Corrections Officers Bill of Rights
In the near future, I will re-introduce legislation creating the Corrections Officers Bill of Rights. This legislation will ensure that Pennsylvania’s corrections officers maintain certain rights and will provide them with the ability to appeal during disciplinary proceedings.

With two state corrections facilities located in the Senate district which I represent, I strongly believe any corrections officer found guilty of a crime should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law; however, this legislation will guarantee preservation of the constitutional rights for our corrections officers.

This bill will be similar to legislation I sponsored last session (Senate Bill 424 of 2017.)

If you need any further information about this bill, please contact my office at 717-787-2637.
