State Police to Assist in Enforcement of Closure of Non-Life-Sustaining Businesses, Encourages Compliance

Harrisburg, PA – Colonel Robert Evanchick, commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP), issued the following statement today on the agency’s enforcement of Governor Tom Wolf’s order closing physical locations of non-life-sustaining businesses:

“The priority of the Pennsylvania State Police is protecting lives and maintaining order in the commonwealth. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, troopers and liquor control enforcement officers are prepared to ensure compliance with Governor Wolf’s order.

“Private businesses, organizations, and other noncompliant entities face possible criminal penalties under the Administrative Code of 1929, 71 P.S. § 1409 and/or the Pennsylvania Disease Prevention and Control Law of 1955, 35 P.S. § 521.20(a). Both violations are summary offenses punishable by fines and even jail time. Violators may also be subject to additional administrative penalties under certain circumstances.

“We believe most Pennsylvanians want to act responsibly and do their part to help slow the spread of this deadly virus. Troopers and liquor control officers will make every effort to achieve voluntary compliance by educating business owners and using discretion when appropriate. But our message is clear: COVID-19 is a serious health and public safety risk that requires an extraordinary response from law enforcement and the public. I urge everyone to stay home, stay calm, and stay safe.”

The governor has directed the following state agencies and local officials to enforce the closure orders to the full extent of the law:

Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board

Department of Health

Department of Agriculture

Pennsylvania State Police

Local officials, using their resources to enforce closure orders within their jurisdictions

The Wolf administration has provided all local law enforcement with enforcement guidance that mirrors PSP’s.

I guess, I'm puzzled. The state police are already over taxed trying to do their daily routines. How are they supposed to try and deal with this? I'm almost sure the crime rate will only increase with less general population out and about keeping a visual.

PA Liquor Control Board is gonna look like hypocrites when Gov Wolfe changes his mind and re opens state liquor stores. Which may be happening now. How can they order bars closed, but have liquor stores open?? Either this is a legitimate health concern or it isn't.

add to the fact, wolf is considering emptying the prisons and jails... they (we) will have our hands full if that happens, just ask the new yorkers how thats working out.

That's why it's time I guess the decent population of citizens will have to be a bit more vigilant. People will have to protect and look out for themselves, their own property and that if others. You're right John, crime will go up.
