Protective orders; expiration; Virginia Criminal Information Network. Provides that when a protective order is issued, a court shall immediately enter and transfer information to the Virginia Criminal Information Network (VCIN) system. A copy of such order shall also be delivered immediately to the primary law-enforcement agency responsible for service and entry of such orders for service on the person who is the subject of the order. The bill also establishes the precise time when protective orders expire so that they can automatically be cleared from VCIN. The bill also requires that clerks make electronic reports of certain proceedings or adjudications to the Central Criminal Records Exchange and defines the term "electronic report." Read the Bill »
