Accredidation
NSO header

The Standards and Compliance department is responsible for maintaining the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office accreditation with the Department of Corrections and Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission.

The Virginia Department of Corrections inspects the jail each year, and state and local authorities perform periodic fire and health inspections. Sheriff Bob McCabe and staff are proud that the Norfolk City Jail has consistently received 100% compliance for certification on all life, health, and safety compliance standards.

Additionally, the jail is audited every three years to ensure the facility is operating within Department of Corrections standards.

Sheriff McCabe also started a policy to have Correctional Services staff do monthly environmental and medical services inspections to make sure inmates receive proper care.

If you would like to see our departments’ year-end reports, view our NSO Annual Indicators below.

For further information contact Major Angela Bennett, John Woodward and Lt. Heather Richardson at 757-664-4706 and 757-664-4940.
