Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35) has been appointed by Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25) to serve on the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD).
The commission is chaired by the Attorney General and includes public officials, judges, law enforcement officials and private citizens who make recommendations to the governor and General Assembly on issues relating to the criminal justice system.
It works to protect and support crime victims, enhance law enforcement and empower communities through collaboration and information sharing. The commission leads efforts to advocate for safe schools, provides technological and information-sharing tools and launches evidence-based innovative criminal justice programs.
“I’m very pleased to work with the PCCD on a wide range of issues related to our criminal justice system, particularly improving school safety,” said Langerholc, who worked in the Senate to obtain increased state funding for school safety and security grants. “As a former assistant district attorney, I know first-hand how important it is to enhance the quality, coordination and planning within the criminal and juvenile justice systems, provide services to crime victims and find new ways to make our communities safer.”
Langerholc will serve on the PCCD through February 5 of 2023.
