VAPBA Legislative Update 01-30-12

January 30, 2012

This week our efforts in Richmond at the General Assembly were met with some success. House bill 675 would raise the threshold amount of Grand Larceny to five hundred dollars, but would have also made it more difficult for our Conservation Police Officers to develop successful cases against wildlife violators selling animal parts. This bill failed to come out of the Criminal sub committee of the Courts of Justice Committee. The Senate bill on the same issue is SB71, this bill will pass out of the senate and will head to the House at crossover. We will watch to see if the House kills the bill as they did HB 675.

However, since at least as early as the 1970s, law enforcement agencies have adopted alternate schedule configurations. Compressed workweek schedules (CWWs), in which the workweek is shortened and the length of the day is extended, have indeed been popularized in the last several decades in many industries, including policing.
