McInnis EOW 16x9v2All Staff:

It is with great sadness I report to you the passing of Major Ron McInnis. Ron died in his home with his family there supporting him. He fought his illness with courage long and hard for over four years, which is remarkable for anyone.

Ron was a good friend to me and a beloved member of the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office family. He served in just about every area of the Sheriff’s Office with a smile, respect, care, and dignity. He was full of compassion and never wavered to speak up as an advocate for others. Ron truly knew the meaning of the “golden rule” because he always treated others the way he wanted to be treated. His leadership and presence will be greatly missed.

Ron Joe webRon was promoted to Major on August 17. This is the official biographical information that accompanied the announcement:

Captain Ronald McInnis (Promoted to Major)

Ron was hired on August 23, 2003. He was a NSO deputy from 1984 until 1993 under the Sheriff Mapp administration. He ran for Sheriff in 1993 and was rehired by Sheriff McCabe in 2003 and graduated from Basic Training Academy in 2004. Assignments have included the Jail, Security Threat Unit, Operations-Circuit Courts and various assignments including Community Affairs. His previous promotion to Captain was in December 2013. Ron was a Certified Gang Specialist.

Please keep Ron’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
