HARRISBURG – Senator Wayne Langerholc Jr. (R-35) has been appointed to the School Safety and Security Committee pursuant to Act 44 of 2018.
The appointment was made by Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25).
“As a father to three daughters, I realize the urgency and significance of the tasks before the committee and understand it is crucial that we strive to ensure there is a consistent level of safety for every child entering a school in Pennsylvania,” said Langerholc.
“I would like to thank Senator Scarnati for appointing me to this vitally important committee.”
Act 44 created the School Safety and Security Committee under the Pennsylvania Commission of Crime and Delinquency and consists of representatives from various state departments, behavioral health professionals, local law enforcement and school officials.
The committee is responsible for establishing criteria to be used when conducting school safety and security assessments, registering school safety and security assessment providers, developing a survey for school entities to measure school safety and security, administering the School Safety and Security Grant Program, and working with school entities on continuing education focused on safety and security.
“I am pleased to appoint Senator Langerholc to the School Safety and Security Committee,” said Scarnati.
“As a former Assistant District Attorney, he will be an asset to the committee given his experience working and bringing together professionals from different backgrounds to focus on public safety.”
