Humane Society Officer Bill Becomes Law

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – Legislation by Lebanon County Rep. Frank Ryan which strengthens the training and oversight of Humane Society police officers has been signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf. House Bill 1917 is now Act 77 of 2018. The measure strengthens current training and oversight requirements by increasing initial and annual training hours, mandates training of the proper procedure to file citations and warrants, including when and how to contact other law enforcement, and includes training in farm operations and biosecurity, including at least one on-site visit to a working commercial farm operation. It also requires a Humane Society police officer remain a resident of the Commonwealth to retain their appointment as an officer, subjects an officer to automatic revocation of their appointment in all counties if any one county revokes the appointment, and treats associations that employ Humane Society police officers as local agencies under the Right-to-Know Law.
