Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: October 1, 2021 03:01 PM
From: Senator Mike Regan
To: All Senate members
Subject: Coroners’ Education Board
Pennsylvania’s coroners bring a wealth of knowledge to their elected position, but it is of the utmost importance that they be trained and educated through a program that addresses all of the necessary topics and skills needed for their job.
Currently, the Coroners’ Education Board is housed within the Office of Attorney General, but the Board has had little say in decisions regarding the training program, which coroners have found does not cover key subjects, nor is there a high standard for determining successful completion of the program.
To remedy this, I intend to introduce legislation to move the Coroners’ Education Board to the purview of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) and align the structure with that of the Sheriff and Deputy Sheriff Education and Training Board, which is already under PCCD.
The Coroners’ Education Board would be tasked with establishing a training program that meets the current needs of coroners. It is our responsibility to ensure they are equipped to perform their job duties through proper education, and that starts with a board made up of coroners empowered to bring professional insight to the table when determining what an education program should be comprised of.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation for these individuals who willingly step up to serve their community in a way that many of us would not be able to do – nor choose to do.

Introduced as SB1037
