Virginia State Crime Commission Creates Protective Order and Law Enforcement Work Groups
May 17, 2012
RICHMOND – Senator Janet Howell (D Fairfax), Chair of the Virginia State Crime Commission, today announced the formation of two special work groups to examine protective orders and law enforcement issues. As a result of numerous bill referrals sent to the Crime Commission this year by the General Assembly, there will be two work groups that will meet over the summer to review these issues. Each work group will be comprised of Crime Commission members and representatives from a variety of agencies and organizations.
The law enforcement work group will specifically focus on officers responding to calls, high speed pursuits, and line-ups/photo arrays. The law enforcement work group plans to meet on Wednesday, June 16th at 10:00 a.m. in Senate Room 3 of the Capitol. Since the work group will be reviewing two somewhat separate topics, police line-ups will be discussed during the afternoon portion of the meeting, approximately at 12:30 p.m.
The protective order work group will focus on the process and service of protective orders, GPS tracking devices, penalties, and who may petition for a protective order. The protective order work group plans to meet on Tuesday, June 22nd at 11:00 a.m. in Senate Room 3 of the Capitol.
Both meetings are going to be held in Richmond and are open to the public.
