PA State Police to Up Presence at Schools (September 28, 2018)

As per new rules originating from Governor Wolf’s School Safety Task Force, PA State Police will now be visiting schools in areas that don’t have their own police departments and for which the State Police provide primary coverage. State Police barracks will now send someone to do a check once per shift, which results in visits occurring at least three times per day to schools in nearly 1,300 PA municipalities, most of them rural. State Police may also make visits to schools in areas that have their own police forces.
