Summary as passed House: (all summaries)
Power of magistrates to issue felony arrest warrants. Provides that a magistrate may not issue an arrest warrant for a felony offense upon the basis of a complaint by a person other than a law-enforcement officer or an animal control officer without prior authorization from the attorney for the Commonwealth or a law-enforcement agency in his jurisdiction. Currently, the magistrate need only consult with the attorney for the Commonwealth or law-enforcement agency. The bill also requires a written complaint if the complaint is by a person other than a law-enforcement officer; currently a written complaint is required in such a situation whenever practicable. This bill is identical to SB 782.
