scam alert 16x9There's a scam that's been run targeting inmates in the Norfolk City Jail (as well as in Newport News) that has resulted in some inmates becoming victims of identity theft while incarcerated in the jail. Some of those charged in the scam were also inmates in the Norfolk City Jail, and took advantage of their incarceration to con their fellow inmates by steering them in the direction of others involved in carrying out the con.

An article (Virginia jail inmates robbed by fake bail bond company, prosecutors say) which was published by the Washington Post in March explains how the scam worked, and identifies the first people charged in the conspiracy.

In an effort to warn inmates, the NSO is distributing the memo below to inmates, as well as producing a video for them to watch which explains how the scam works and what they should watch out for. 

Ralphs16x9

You are invited to join us on Saturday, May 6, 2017 for the Fifth Annual Friends and Family Ride to Ralph’s BBQ in Weldon, NC for No Reason Except to Have Lunch. Come enjoy the ride and the friendship of your fellow riders.

This is not a charity ride, so you do not have to pay any money to go. All of our law enforcement friends, family, and supporters are welcome to come. If you do not have a motorcycie or you do not want to ride, then you are more than welcome to tag along in a four wheel vehicle. (We like those guys in the four wheel vehicles; they can carry our gear.)

Joe on TV slideJust a little more than a year ago, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) offered to install a satellite dish on the roof of the Norfolk City Jail. Why? Well, with that dish, inmates would get the chance to have access to a few religious programs. It was completely free, so we agreed to have it installed.

Now, we are able to say that some of our inmates are watching those channels and the programming is actually helping them heal from their pasts while incarcerated.

TBN employees came to meet some of the inmates who agreed to share their stories, and even made a short video featuring Sheriff Baron and Programs Manager Greg Thomas.

In Her ShoesThere is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes.

It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: sexual violence and gender relations.

The "2017 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, The International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence" took place On Friday, April 7, with the walk starting and ending at the MacArthur Center Green in Downtown Norfolk.

twinkletoesDuring the first weekend in April, Public Information Officer Kaila DeRienzo, who is also an amateur ballroom dancer, competed in the annual Washington D.C. Area Spring Freestyles Competition in Tysons Corner, Virginia. 

Accompanied by her professional partners Taras Denysenko and Noah Stovall, Kaila performed 13 dances in categories such as waltz, tango, foxtrot, swing, hustle, samba, and rumba against fellow female amateur balloom dancers from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia.

She was awarded the Top Female Award in her competition category. 

Bennett in tunnelOn Tuesday, March 28, the Norfolk Sheriff's Office hit a major milestone.

After months of construction, a tunnel connecting the jail building to the new consolidated courthouse was completed and opened for use.

Prior to this tunnel being built, deputies had to escort inmates to court using a path outside of the jail building- which took a lot of time and manpower.

The new tunnel system, which prevents everyone from having to walk outside, makes the transportation process easier and safer for the inmates, the deputies, and the public.

Terry and puppyWe all face tragedies in life. At best, the pain they cause can be eased by the kindness and generosity of others.

Recently, Terry Haddock, who serves as one of NSO's chaplains and is a weekly volunteer for religious programs had such an experience.

It began early in March. Terry had gone home early to make preparations for her father's 81st birthday. She heard barking in her back yard, and when she went to investigate, saw two dogs viciously attacking her little sheltie dog named Cody.

In an interview with WVEC News, Terry told them the dogs "would not let go, just dragging him like a rag doll.”
