Virginia bets big on broadband

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam on Friday announced plans to invest $700 million in federal relief money toward the state’s goal of achieving universal broadband access over the next three years. The proposal, which involves using funds from the American Rescue Plan to build out last-mile broadband infrastructure throughout the state, aims to move up Northam’s self-imposed deadline for universal broadband access from 2028 to 2024. A majority of the connections to be built with the $700 million will be completed within the next 18 months, the governor’s office said. Ryan Johnston reports.

Police misconduct registry aims for fall launch

The Law Enforcement Work Inquiry System Registry, or LEWIS, is designed to pull together public records for officers who were terminated or resigned because of misconduct including excessive use of force or domestic violence. The database is intended to shed light on “wandering officers,” where an officer dismissed for misconduct is hired by another department. Emily Bamforth has details.
