Emmett Madden appointed to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency

Posted on March 25th, 2016

R. Emmett Madden, Esquire is proud to announce his recent appointment by Chairman Josh Shapiro to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD). The PCCD is a group of Pennsylvania’s top experts on criminal justice issues including judges, justices, police chiefs, and heads of many of the most important criminal justice agencies (probation officers, district attorneys and public defenders). The Crime Commission makes recommendations to the governor and legislature regarding important issues facing all citizens.

Topics currently being reviewed or discussed by the PCCD:

1. Body Worn Cameras (BWC’s) for Law Enforcement.

The Commission is studying the use of BWC’s by law enforcement and making recommendations about when these videos should be given to defense attorneys and defendants.  Some questions include: When, if ever, can these videos be released to the public? And do such cameras and videos coincide with Pennsylvania’s relatively strict privacy laws? The Commission hopes to make recommendations for their use statewide. (more…)

New studies published in both The New York Times and Bicycling Magazine suggest that if you want a smart and creative lawyer with a finely-tuned brain, then you want a cyclist.

Bicycling Magazine recently cited a study finding those with greater leg power sustained their cognitive ability and brain health far longer than their weaker-legged counterparts. The New York Times examines a recent study showing that exercise not only improves one’s cognitive abilities, but can change the brain, making it stronger. (more…)
