Mark Herring on Families & Children

 

 


Innovative tech to protect children & catch perpetrators

Attorney General Mark R. Herring recognizes that nothing is more important than the safety of our children. That's why he has made Virginia a national leader in the use of innovative technology to protect children and catch perpetrators, and led a bipartisan effort to expand the reach of Virginia's efforts. He and his team have helped put hundreds of child predators behind bars through aggressive prosecutions and digital forensics work.

Attorney General Herring and his team have made the services of the office more readily available and accessible to state and local law enforcement agencies and invested in a mobile computer forensics lab so technicians can analyze child pornography at the scene of the crime.

Attorney General Herring's Office has invested in cutting edge technology that makes it easier for investigators to identify child victims and rescue them from dangerous situations.

Strengthen penalties for acts of domestic violence

To protect our kids, he led the effort to crack down on new threats to their safety, working closely with law enforcement and prosecutors to keep dangerous new synthetic drugs off the shelves. He has championed legislation to target those who would commit financial scams against our seniors and as a member of the Governor McDonnell's Domestic Violence and Response Advisory Board, he sponsored and passed legislation to strengthen penalties for acts of domestic violence.
