                                                                                        Can PWC protect itself from an EMP event? Is there a plan, state or local? Who is responsible for recovery from outages?

The 2004 Report of the National Commission to Assess the Threat to the US from an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack stated that an adversary does not need 

to be highly sophisticated to be able to launch an EMP attack, but an EMP attack can cause significant damage to critical infrastructure.

How will Prince William County site future schools?

The Challenges Ahead

Should we re-purpose buildings or county-owned land such as parks or golf-courses?
How does Prince William County school site selection compare with other jurisdictions?
Is there a sweet spot where we can achieve the goal and create a win-win situation?

How did the County Board of Elections implement the Bipartisan Commission on Election Process’s recommendations?

 There were many problems addressed, such as long lines and a lack of efficiency.  The Prince William Committee of 100 presents an expert panel to discuss topics including the optimal point for maximizing access while preserving integrity, ID requirements, closing voter registration before an election (currently 30 days) and expansion of the criteria for absentee ballots and use of electronic means.

Mental health issues are pervasive within the criminal justice system, and how the mentally ill are treated within that system is at the forefront of criminal justice reform nationwide.  Please join the Prince William Committee of 100 for a forum on the subject on November 16th, with a focus on state and local issues and reforms.  A wide range of panelists will discuss the topic on local, state, and national levels, with varying perspectives from legislators, judges, criminal justice professionals, and mental health providers.  This promises to be an informative and eye-opening forum on perhaps the most significant issue in criminal justice today.
