Civil Investigator I/II – Tobacco Enforcement Section - Public Protection Division: Harrisburg (00274281)

The Tobacco Enforcement Section (TES) has two primary missions that flow from the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) of 1998, the agreement that settled Pennsylvania's lawsuit against the tobacco industry. The first mission is to safeguard the Commonwealth’s annual receipt of settlement moneys by diligently enforcing the Tobacco Settlement Agreement Act of 2000 (TSAA) and by enforcing the Tobacco Product Manufacturers Directory Act (TPMDA) which includes maintaining a Directory of Certified Tobacco Product Manufacturers on the Attorney General website to prevent the sale of illegal cigarettes. The second mission is to police the MSA’s public health provisions which restrict the advertising and marketing of tobacco products by participating manufacturers. The ultimate purpose of TES is to promote the health of Pennsylvania citizens through the reduction of tobacco use with particular emphasis on children and teens and to protect the receipt of the MSA settlement dollars that fund important state health-related programs and costs. In addition, the Section enforces the Cigarette Fire Safety and Firefighter Protection Act, 35 P.S. § 1254.1, which mandates the sale of reduced ignition propensity (Fire Safe) cigarettes and works with the PA Department of Health in the prevention of tobacco sales to minors.
