Mark Herring, Va. attorney general, will stop in Manassas Park March 24 on listening tour

Attorney General Mark R. Herring launched a two-week public safety tour of Virginia on March 17. In the next two weeks he will hold 22 regional listening meetings with community leaders, law enforcement and public safety officials.

The attorney general was quoted in a news release as saying, “I want to hear directly from those who know best about the ways the Attorney General’s office can work for the people of Virginia and best serve each community.”

The attorney general’s schedule indicates he will be in the community room at the Manassas Park Police Station, 329 Manassas Drive, starting at 1 p.m.  He will be coming from Winchester where he was to hold a similar meeting at 9 a.m.

He plans to listen to Manassas, Manassas Park and Prince William County community leaders, law enforcement and public safety officials who have been invited to share their priorities, concerns, and opportunities with Herring.

For each regional meeting, at least the mayor or chair of the Board of Supervisors, Commonwealth’s Attorney, sheriff, and police chief of each locality has been invited, with attendance varying according to availability, according to the news release.

While this tour will help inform the Attorney General’s decisions regarding public safety and law enforcement, he has also appointed a three-member panel to review the office’s legal operation.

The panel includes recognized experts in Virginia state government, large law firm management, and private sector management who are working to identify reforms and efficiencies that advance Attorney General Herring’s priority of delivering high-quality, timely, and cost-effective legal work to the people of Virginia and their state government.

The goal of both these efforts is to ensure that the Office of the Attorney General is working for the benefit of the people of Virginia and operated in a manner befitting a modern, major law firm representing their interests.
