Gov. Mark Warner is ordering the department to cut nearly $18-million to help with the state budget shortfall.

The plan includes reducing funding for some anti-crime programs, abolishing about 15 positions, trimming the advertising budget for officer recruitment, establishing fees for operators of state motor-vehicle inspection stations and reducing firearms training.

The state police superintendent says the cuts are not as painful as they could have been.
