Special conservators of the peace; application; appointment order. Requires applications for appointments of special conservators of the peace to be submitted on forms developed by the Office of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court of Virginia, and further requires that the Supreme Court shall establish reasonable judicial training regarding the use of such forms and the powers that may be granted in appointment orders. The bill also requires that if an appointment order grants a special conservator powers over property not within the judicial circuit of the appointing court, the clerk of the appointing court shall transmit a copy of the appointment order to the circuit court clerk and the sheriff or chief of police of each jurisdiction where the conservator has powers. The bill also provides that upon receipt of an application for the appointment of a special conservator by any party other than a sheriff or chief of police, the court shall, prior to entering the appointment order, transmit a copy of the application to the local attorney for the Commonwealth and the local sheriff or chief of police, who may submit to the court a sworn, written statement indicating whether the order of appointment should be granted.
