RICHMOND, Virginia — Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring is launching his second annual public safety tour of the state.
Officials say the meetings will allow Herring to hear from local public safety and law enforcement leaders and elected officials about challenges in their area and ways that his office can help protect their communities.
The tour is set to begin Monday in Norfolk with stops planned later in the week in Henrico, Goochland, Hanover, Chesterfield and Powhatan counties. Other stops are scheduled through April.
Herring's office says invitations are being extended to community leaders, law enforcement and public safety officials from more than 58 agencies and localities.
Last year's tour included 22 regional meetings with more than 60 agencies. Officials say this year's tour expands to many localities not previously visited.
