Interim Superintendent Changes at HRRJ

On December 21 at a regularly-scheduled meeting, the Hampton Roads Regional Jail (HRRJ) Board unanimously voted that Chesapeake Sheriff Jim O’Sullivan will serve as the jail’s new interim superintendent, effective immediately.

Sheriff O’Sullivan will take over the helm from Norfolk Sheriff Robert McCabe. Sheriff McCabe assumed the position on September 12 of this year. He committed to serve as interim superintendent only until the first of the year, if a permanent superintendent was not in place.

“I have enjoyed my time assisting the Hampton Roads Regional Jail as they move forward and implement new procedures to better serve the inmates and staff,” Sheriff McCabe said.

Sheriff O’Sullivan and Sheriff McCabe are working together to assure a smooth transition. The search for a permanent superintendent is currently underway. 

Any further questions from here on out should be forwarded to Janelle Scott, Public Information Officer for the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office. She can be reached by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , by cell at 757-435-0030 or at work at (757) 382-8903.
