Humane Society Police Officer Association say NO to new bill



An animal protection bill inspired by a Boston terrier saved from severe neglect at an Amish dog-breeding farm in Lancaster County last year has been reintroduced in the state Senate. Senate Bill 298, dubbed Libre's Law, would allow district attorneys to bring felony charges against those who knowingly or willingly harm or kill an animal. Sen. Richard Alloway, R-York, Adams, Cumberland and Franklin counties, introduced the bill last year and it passed the Senate as part of a package of animal protection measures, but the House never brought it up for a final vote and now the bill faces opposition from a newly formed "Humane Society Police Officer Association" because the bill impose more background checks on appointed Humane Society Police Officers. "This bill is non sense this senator wants the district attorney to do more background checks on appointed humane society police officer this is non sense the current law as it is already does that and it takes a while for a judge to review the humane society police officer appointment to approve one so we do oppose this non sense what we need is the senate to reinstate the old law that allowed a Humane Society to temporarily appoint a humane society police officer because it takes way to long for one to take the training that takes place twice a year plus most appointed officers pay out of there pockets we dont want another non sense background check and we are going to fight that part of the bill and if it becomes law you are going to see 10 humane society police officers resign from diferent organizations that just formed our group plus i have to make clear some District Attorneys dislike humane society police officers they sometimes make it hard for us to do our job even some police officers too"
