Capitol Police Urge Caution Ahead of Session

The chief of the Virginia Capitol Police is sending a letter to all 140 state legislators, urging them to be cautious as the 2011 session begins this week.

A law enforcement source tells me the Capitol Police do not believe there is any specific threat against members of the General Assembly, but the agency is issuing the warning out of an abundance of caution.

Officers have been ordered to be especially vigilant after the weekend shooting in Arizona, and after last week’s suspicious packages at government buildings in Maryland.
