Strouse elected to state DA board

LOCK HAVEN — Clinton County District Attorney David Strouse has been elected to the board of directors of The Pennsylvania District Attorneys Institute (PDAI).

Strouse, along with District Attorneys Matthew Weintraub of Bucks County and Fran Chardo of Dauphin County were elected to fill vacancies on the board. The PDAI board approved their nominations unanimously during its winter meeting.

“The Pennsylvania District Attorneys Institute works to ensure integrity in the work prosecutors do and truth in the justice we seek,” said Union County District Attorney and PDAI President D. Peter Johnson. “I look forward to the input of our new board members as we work to provide education and training programs that help district attorneys best serve the citizens of this commonwealth.”

The PDAI is the educational and training arm of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association, providing professional development and training for prosecutors, law enforcement and victim advocates.

In addition to training, the PDAI manages statewide programs to place PA MedReturn prescription drug drop-off boxes in communities and works with the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency to provide PA SAVIN, a statewide-automated victim notification service. The Institute recently completed a three-year campaign working with several Pennsylvania-based insurance providers to provide naloxone to local police departments.
