Police using new body cameras

36 Henrico officers testing first batch this fall
Citizens soon will see an addition to the uniforms of Henrico County police officers, as body-mounted cameras will be issued to 400 officers in the county by Jan. 1, 2016.

Henrico Police officials began researching the cameras earlier this year, according to Henrico Police Lt. Chris Eley, and on Oct. 1 ordered 36 cameras for officers to test and determine which is the best match for the department’s needs.

“We’re just being progressive and wanted to get ahead of the curve,” Eley said about the division’s decision to implement cameras. “This will allow us to be more aware of our preconceived biases, how we talk and interact with people and [will] make us better public servants. We’re going to evaluate the system, work on our policy and usage and [on] what to expect from them.” > Read more.

Eye-to-eye with mummichogs


Just how far will a middle school science teacher go in pursuit of becoming a better educator?

For two teachers from Holman Middle School, the desire to get better at their jobs prompted them to endure bug bites, 90-plus temperatures and primitive living conditions, and took them to a remote island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, where they spent nights in rustic cabins without air conditioning, showers, or many of the comforts of home.

As an added bonus, they endured – or enjoyed, in some cases – numerous eyeball-to-eyeball encounters with scaly, slimy water creatures. > Read more.

The many needy lives of Walter Mitty
