Roanoke's police chief is making his first major changes.
He has eliminated the traffic bureau and re-assigned more than 50 officers.
Some have been promoted, but others are NOT happy.
The question is: how will this affect public service?

After listening to testimony, a judge today refused to release Martin into the custody of her parents.
It was revealed in court that Martin has been on probation for verbally assaulting her grandmother.
And while she is a gifted student-- Martin suffers from depression and has tried to kill herself.
Her mother, Sara, says she supports her daughter's version of what happened despite the fact it was HER father that was killed.

In a rare move, prosecutors filed a motion to move Druckenmiller's upcoming rape trial out of the county.
They believe it will be hard to find an impartial jury because many locals are either football fans or tied to the university in some way.
Circuit Judge Ray Grubbs says he will keep the motion in mind but wants to try to seat a local jury.
Druckenmiller's attornies believe it's the right move.

According to his press secretary, it was to a political event in Baltimore.

((PATRICIA CORNWELL/MYSTERY NOVELIST: I'M FINISHING UP GETTING MY HELICOPTER PILOT'S LICENSE ALSO, YOU KNOW, SO IT'S SOMETHING THAT I LIKE TO DO IN ADDITION TO IT BEING USEFUL. )) [runs:08]
The Virginia State Police used to have as useful a helicopter-- the Bell 222.
It was one of only two that can fly "instruments only," and the only suitable for executive transport.
But it was another governor and HIS celebrity friend that gave it a bad name.
Doug Wilder was criticized for apparently private flights in the state chopper to see former porn star and socialite Patricia Kluge.
Then George Allen took office-- and promptly honed down the executive perks, including the state yacht.
The legislature, irritated about the yacht, threw the helicopter on the auction block.
So now, if a governor wants to go for the kind of ride a chopper can provide, he or she can commandeer a military chopper, or look to the kindness of celebrity authors or corporate pals.
