HB 695: Criminal Justice System Enhancement Account

H.B. 695, P.N. 788 (BROWNE). This would amend Title 42 (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure).
This would create a Criminal Justice System Enhancement Account. A fee of $20 would be charged to every drug crime offender, except on those whom this would create an undue hardship, with these funds placed into this Account. The country collecting a fee may keep no more than 5% of the fee to pay for collection costs. Of remaining funds, 65% would be allocated to the Pennsylvania Commission for Community College for enhancing local criminal justice system policies, procedures, and work processes and 35% would be allocated to law enforcement agencies for maintaining arrest and arraignment systems as well as future criminal data systems and services.

I'm a borough councilman in Edinboro, PA. We governments in the small towns that host SSHE universities need something like this with a fine or surcharge on processing minor drug and alcohol offenses to help suppress such offenses. We need the proceeds to go through our local DJ's office to our general funds for support for the extra police we have to have because of the disproportionate number of younger people in our communities. WE are unduly burdened and get no PILOT from these very large SSHE institutions.
