Senior Seminar Program 92It would be hard to overemphasize how pleased the Norfolk Sheriff's Office is with how our Senior Support Services Seminar turned out. Hundreds of older Norfolk residents were able to participate in an event focused on them and their unique needs.

It began at 9 a.m. with vendor exhibits. The NSO honor guard did the presentation of colors followed by an invocation by Rev. Dr. Kirk T. Houston, Sr. and lunch. Mayor Alexander spoke and Sheriff Baron presented plaques to the key sponsors: Irwin Pharmacy, Anthem, Attorney General's Office, and Dominion Power.

We had over 500 attendees. The 65 vendors who signed up for the event provided access to services and products that helped make it a huge success. One guest said that the vendors could not have done a better job explaining their services and she really appreciated them.

award sealI am pleased to announce the following selections for Employees of the Third Quarter - 2017 for the quarter ending September 30, 2017.

Deputy Michael Conner was nominated by his supervisor and has been selected as Deputy of the Third Quarter 2017.

On August 16, 2017, Deputy Michael Conner was first on the scene to assist with a medical emergency involving one of his teammates. Deputy Conner remained calm in the midst of a stressful and highly unusual circumstance. He instinctively reverted to training received through the academy, his previous employment, and life experience to render immediate aid to Cpl. Barclift.

PinkPatchProjectThroughout the month of October, anyone who encounters a NSO staffer may notice something a bit different - a pink NSO badge or patch.

Back in August, a story in NSO Times announced that the NSO would become a participant in The Pink Patch Project.

At the time, Lt. Felicia Morgan, a cancer survivor, presented Sheriff Baron with the pink badge that he purchased to wear during the month of October.

The back story:

LGBT Liasons 16x9As we reported back in February of 2017, although long an inclusive workplace, the Norfolk Sheriff's Office, under the leadership of Sheriff Joe Baron, took the additional step of appointing Lt. Meryah Breeden as on-staff LGBT Liason (as well as Corporal Xavier Kent to be her assistant) for the NSO.

Recently, Lt. Breeden - along with LGBT liasons from law enforcement agencies across the area and other advocates for the LGBT community - was a guest on The Hampton Roads Show on WAVY-TV, talking about the positive impact their work is having.

In the February article, Sheriff Baron said he hoped that by making Lieutenant Breeden and Corporal Kent available to staff members, every employee will feel embraced as a person when he or she comes to work. "No one should have to check his or her identity at the door," he said.
