Commonwealth’s Attorney earns appointment on Virginia board

Halifax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Kim Slayton White has been named to the Computer Crimes Advisory Committee of the Virginia Joint Commission on Technology and Science.

The commission was established by the 1997 General Assembly as a permanent legislative commission.

The commission is charged with the responsibility of studying all aspects of technology and science and promoting the development of technology and science in Virginia through sound public policies.

Each year the commission, made up of senators and delegates, develops a work plan and identifies topic areas it will consider, then creates advisory committees to study those initiatives.

Upon completion of the studies, the committees issue their final reports and recommendations, including legislative proposals.

The committees are composed of members of the commission and of persons with expertise in the matters under consideration by the committee.

White, who has prosecuted computer crimes, previously served on Bob McDonnell’s Youth Internet Safety Task Force during McDonnell’s term as Virginia Attorney General.
