HARRISBURG – Legislation sponsored by Allegheny County Sen. Devlin Robinson that would authorize state parole agents to wear body cameras was approved by the PA Senate. Senate Bill 260 would allow state parole agents of the PA Department of Corrections to wear body cameras capable of capturing encounters with parolees. Other members of law enforcement including deputy sheriffs, municipal police officers, and members of the PA State Police are authorized. State lawmakers learned that state parole agents are not permitted to use body cameras because of an outdated law. However, representatives from the PA Parole Board expressed how helpful it would be in carrying out their responsibilities and duties for the job. The bill now moves to the PA House.
