Attorney General Mark Herring concludes statewide tour in Waynesboro

mark herringAttorney General Mark Herring concluded a statewide public safety tour today with a regional meeting with representatives from Waynesboro, Staunton, and Augusta County.

Over the last two weeks, Attorney General Herring has traveled more than 2,500 miles to hold 22 regional meetings with representatives from more than 60 cities, counties, and towns. Along the way he has heard from local public safety and law enforcement leaders and local elected officials about unique challenges in their area and ways that he can help protect our communities.

“I am extremely grateful that so many public safety professionals were willing to share their experiences with me over the last two weeks,” said Attorney General Herring. “After listening to the law enforcement communities from Fairfax to Bristol, and Virginia Beach to Winchester, I have noticed some common concerns across the state, as well as some characteristics of successful communities. The insight gained during these meetings will be invaluable as I work to ensure that the Office of Attorney General is a productive partner for our local law enforcement and prosecutors.”

Attorney General Herring intends to continue his outreach to law enforcement and criminal justice professionals throughout his term, including those in localities who were not able to participate in this round of meetings.
