3 Action Items: As of July 1 2015 Virginia’s Local Police and Sherriff’s Departments Can NOT Turn RSO’s Who are Attempting to Register, Re-Register or Update Their Photograph Away…… and if They Do the Administration Wants to Know About it Immediately Because They’ll Lose Funding!

Update: A 3rd Action Item was added after posting, be sure to check the end of this post!

Dear Readers, 

Over the last 7 years I have heard from so many of you who have had no luck or extreme difficulties when attempting to re-register or when needing to make a change in your residence, employment, vehicles, email or phone numbers at your local sheriff or police (county or city) department. 

Many of you have waited for hours in the lobby of your local police department waiting for someone to just fill out a form, some of you have been told they will only take your SO information one or two days a week during specific hours, some of you have been told they have no camera to take your 2 year SO photo…….then some of you who got the local authority to do the paperwork they either failed to get it to the VSP before your deadline OR they lost it all together resulting in an investigation of failure-to-register against you by the VSP.  

BUT….MOST of you who have contacted me over the years have been flat-out-denied to register any SO information with the local authorities, period! 

They have turned you away telling you that you MUST go to a Virginia State Police (VSP) Barracks even though your deadline might be that day or that hour (if an email address) and we all know the VSP Barracks not open 7 days a week/365 days a year (July 9, 2015 post ) nor is there a Barracks in every town, the nearest VSP location could be a 2+ hour drive each way!  

Well as of July 1st 2015 that should all be over.
