WASHINGTON (KDKA) – Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey is planning to introduce two bills on Monday to improve the way police engage with those with disabilities.

The measures look to address rising rates of police violence involving people with disabilities.

It would also enhance regional 2-1-1 and 9-8-8 call systems, diverting some non-criminal calls away from 9-1-1 and to human services and mental health programs.
