The State Crime Commission is a bipartisan criminal justice agency under the Virginia General Assembly that studies and makes recommendations on protection- and public safety-related issues. The Commission studies causes of, and ways of preventing, crime; compensation of law enforcement personnel; methods of apprehending, trying, punishing, and rehabilitating convicted criminals; etc. It works with other state commissions and agencies (whose cooperation and assistance in the Commission's performance of its duties is mandated by law), coordinating all legislative proposals affecting crimes, crime control and criminal procedure.
