Summary of Actions Taken by the Board on April 26, 2005
Mr. Thornton led the Board, staff, and public in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
Dr. Kirkland R. Walton, Pastor, St. Peter Baptist Church, provided the invocation.
The minutes of the April 12, 2005 Regular and Special Meetings were approved.
The Henrico County Division of Police has received reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) for complying with highly regarded and broadly recognized law enforcement standards that address policies and procedures, administration, operations, and support services. Col. Henry W. Stanley, Jr., Chief of Police, and other representatives of the Division appeared before CALEA on March 19, 2005 during the Commission’s spring conference in Birmingham, Alabama. The Commissioners voted unanimously to award reaccreditation status to the Division for a period of three years. This marks the fifth time that the Division has been accredited by CALEA. The reaccreditation process began in December 2004 with an on-site visit by the CALEA assessment team.
The Division was recognized in two additional ways at the CALEA spring conference. First, the Division was cited as a “Flagship Agency.” The CALEA Flagship Agency program acknowledges the achievement and expertise of the most successful CALEA accredited public safety agencies. Second, the Division was designated a “Meritorious Accredited Agency” for having been accredited for 15 or more continuous years. The Division first earned CALEA accreditation in April 1987.
Mike Nicholas, a resident of the Fairfield District, expressed concerns regarding anger management courses provided by Commonwealth Catholic Charities to certain clients of Henrico Area Mental Health and Retardation Services.

Mr. Donati, who currently serves as Chairman of the Capital Region Airport Commission (CRAC), noted that Air Tran Airways would begin offering new daily nonstop flight options to and from Richmond International Airport on June 23, 2005.

He also announced that CRAC had awarded contracts to build a two-level passenger terminal building and widen security checkpoints at the airport and had received a federal grant to improve Airport Drive. Mr. Kaechele, a current member and former chairman of CRAC, commented that the airport should continue to see increases in passenger traffic with the new low-cost air service and would experience additional congestion during the construction phase of the new terminal.
