PA Seeks To Share Information About Violent Offenders

Representatives of the state’s Commission on Crime and Delinquency, State Police, and Board of Probation and Parole met recently with officials from Maryland and West Virginia to discuss using technology to share information about dangerous offenders.According to a news release issued by the governor’s office, the cross-border partnership enables law enforcement and parole and probation officials to exchange information with one another on arrests and will make it possible for the PA Board of Probation and Parole to take action if the offender violates the terms of his or her release even if the parolee has relocated to another state.

A June summit is planned to discuss information-sharing opportunities with leaders from Delaware, Washington, D.C., Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
