The Daily Local News is reporting that the Chester County Mayor’s Association last week adopted a resolution in support of Senate Bill 251, which would enable all municipal police officers to use the same motor vehicle speed-timing equipment–specifically radar–as the Pennsylvania State Police. James Norley of West Chester, chairman of the Chester County Mayor’s Association, says that the bill, sponsored by Rep. John Taylor’s of Pa.’s 177th District, has a lot of merit. In fact, all 15 mayors in Chester County support the resolution. The bill has advanced in the state Legislature, and local officials are urging lawmakers to pass it into law. Expanding radar use beyond state police has failed to pass for more than 50 years, but now, officials are optimistic they will see it signed into law.
