United States Postal Service; inspectors. Removes the word "Inspection" from references to the United States Postal Inspection Service in several criminal procedure sections. The United States Postal Service restructured its law-enforcement agencies in 1997 and currently has two federal law-enforcement agencies with jurisdiction to investigate Postal Service-related crimes. By removing the word "Inspection," both agencies are included in Code sections governing conservators of the peace, issuance of search warrants, and analysis of forensic evidence. Amends § 19.2-12, § 19.2-187, § 19.2-187.01, § 19.2-56, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
