Va. commission to vote on police, drug issues

By The Associated Press

The Virginia State Crime Commission is set to vote on a number of legislative proposals regarding police issues, protective orders and synthetic marijuana.

The commission will vote Wednesday whether to recommend the proposals to the General Assembly, which convenes in January.

Legislators have proposed expanding protective orders to those in dating relationships and requiring those under protective orders to be monitored by GPS, among other changes.

One proposal would place restrictions on police pursuits and stiffen penalties for those who run from police, including forfeiting their vehicles. Another measure would change the way police do criminal lineups.

Legislators also have proposed banning "Spice" or "K2," a synthetic marijuana.
