Senator Mark Herring will participate in the first meeting of the Domestic Violence Prevention and Response Advisory Board today in Richmond. Herring was named to the board by Virginia Secretary of Public Safety Marla Decker. The board was established by Governor Bob McDonnell pursuant to Executive Order 25.
The Domestic Violence Prevention and Response Advisory Board will make recommendations for more effective domestic violence services in Virginia through work with state and local agencies, as well as stakeholders.
“Domestic violence prevention is a critical issue affecting Virginia families,” Herring said. “I take very seriously the charge of working to reduce the number of cases of domestic violence and to better manage our response when incidents do occur. I am committed to the success of this Board and to a safer future for Virginia families.”
