LEGISLATIVE LENS

Leading and supporting legislative change

PCSA is supporting the implementation of legislative reforms. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf recently signed into law two police reform bills, one establishing a database for efficient background checks on officers, the second requiring mental health evaluations for officers involved in deadly force incidents as well as training for police officers on trauma-informed care, use of deadly force, de-escalation and harm reduction techniques, community and cultural awareness, implicit bias, procedural justice and reconciliation techniques.

In future legislative sessions, PCSA may lead or co-lead efforts to improve the law enforcement landscape in Pennsylvania.

Member Agencies will set legislative agenda annually.
