Details Regarding Oath of Office Ceremony for Joseph P. Baron

Following Robert J. McCabe’s retirement announcement in December 2016, Colonel Joseph P. Baron will assume the position of Norfolk Sheriff on February 1, 2017 until the general election is held on November 7, 2017.

An Oath of Office ceremony is open to all and will be held on February 1 at 4 pm with the Honorable Judge John R. Doyle III presiding in Courtroom 6A (6th Floor) of the Consolidated Courthouse. If overflow is needed, an adjacent courtroom will be opened for additional viewing.

A reception will follow in the Rotunda of the Consolidated Courthouse on the 8th Floor by invitation only. Thanks to the help of NSO staff members, there will be an opportunity to witness the Oath of Office ceremony via Facebook Live on the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Facebook page. The link will stay on the page after the broadcast for viewing at your convenience.

Due to spacing constraints in the courtroom, it is extremely vital that your organization let the NSO know if someone will be in attendance no later than the morning of February 1 so that adequate access for personnel and cameras can be arranged ahead of time. Regarding interviews with the new sheriff, he will be made available for a group interview 10-15 minutes immediately following the ceremony before he attends the reception. To confirm your attendance, please contact Kaila DeRienzo, P.I.O for the Norfolk Sheriff's Office. She can be reached by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots.
