Henrico Police receive donated canine ballistic vest


The Henrico County Police Division Feb. 15 received a ballistic vest for one of its newest canines after a donation initiated by the Cumberland Hospital for Adolescents in New Kent County.

The Cumberland Hospital of Adolescents made a monetary donation to the New Kent County Sheriff’s Office in honor of Sarah Ann McLaughlin, who was a communications officer with the New Kent Sheriff’s Office and the daughter of Sheriff Joe McLaughlin Jr. and his wife, Robin. She also was an avid animal enthusiast, and their donation was intended for the purchase of a bullet resistant vest for a canine. The New Kent Sheriff’s Office does not have a canine, so Sheriff Joe McLaughlin Jr. offered to purchase a vest for a Henrico County police canine.

UPDATE: NOV. 3, 9:50 P.M. – Election night was a good night to be an incumbent in Henrico County.

All incumbents who sought election retained their seats in the Nov. 3 races, led by Henrico Commonwealth's Attorney Shannon Taylor, who defeated Republican challenger Tony Pham by a wider-than-expected margin (56 percent to 43 percent) in perhaps the most contested race in the county.

"I promise you all that I will continue to work, every day, to keep our community safe and secure and to keep those crime rates going down," Taylor said in a statement after the election. "I promise to keep working smart – to do everything I can to make sure criminals are behind bars, that those suffering from addiction get treatment, that juveniles have the opportunity to get on the right track and those with mental illness get the help they need."

Virginia death, marriage and divorce certificates are now available at all DMV customer service centers and DMV 2 Go mobile customer service centers, as an expansion of the partnership between the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH)’s Division of Vital Records.

In the partnership’s first phase, birth certificates became available at DMV customer service centers in March 2014.

Several key seats up for grabs in Nov. 3 election


Henrico voters will go to the polls Nov. 3 to cast their ballots in a number of local and state elections, including several key races that could change the shape of local leadership.

All 10 seats on the Board of Supervisors and School Board are up for election, and five are contested. Perhaps the most notable race is taking place in the Three Chopt District, where three men are vying to replace longtime Republican Supervisor Dave Kaechele, who is retiring after 36 years and nine terms on the board.

Kaechele’s choice to replace himself on the board, Planning Commission member Tommy Branin (also a Republican) is opposed by Democrat Bob Shippee, recently retired from an analytical role with Capital One, and independent Eric Rohnacher, a financial advisor.
