Pennsylvania Corrections Officers statutory powers of arrest

There is a lot said as to weather Corrections Officers In PA have statutory powers of arrest, or not.
In the performance of their duties they most certainly do, in certain situations. Recapturing an Escapee for instance, while in hot pursuit. Trespassing or violating the permitted of the institutions property. These are just a few examples but I think you get the picture.

That being said, Co's From Pennsylvania are covered under LEOSA, however as you can see from the responses here interpretation widely varies, and venturing into NJ, NY, MD, Il, or NC would be at your own risk.
