Cpl Bacon AwardCorporal Angela Bacon was selected as Deputy Sheriff of the Year by the American Legion Tidewater Post 327 on Lesner Avenue, and was honored during a presentation ceremony held on January 24, 2017.

Congratulations to Cpl. Bacon. The award is well deserved.

Please take the opportunity to extend your appreciation the next time you see her.

Our Inmate Workforce has been hard at work with more landscaping and cleanup projects around the city.

Their most recent effort was to cleanup the open space adjacent to the Third Presbyterian Church on Templar Blvd. Under the supervision of Deputies Ashley and Lord, the inmates did a fantastic job taking care of the project in less than 2 hours, and earning them a letter of appreciation from residents in the neighborhood.

The deputies instructed the inmates to pull all fallen branches from the area before using brush cutters to clear the ground. They hauled off a trailer full of debris. You can see below how much the inmate's work improved the condition of the property.

McCabe Then and NowIt’s hard to put into words just how decrepit and poorly managed the Norfolk City Jail was in 1993. Arguably, it resembled the kind of facility you’d expect to find in a third world country, with paint peeling off of the walls and ceilings, infestations of roaches and rodents, leaks, mold, non-functional fire exits, medical facilities that had patient/inmates sleeping on the floor due to overcrowding, and a general lack of hygienic conditions and oversight throughout the facility.

The various floors of the jail, in which prisoners were assigned according to gender, age, severity of the offense and other factors such as the need to be segregated from other inmates because of sexual preference, had acquired nicknames such as “The House of Pain” and “Thunderdome.”

McDanielParker L. McDaniel, Jr., who retired from NSO as a Sergeant in 2003, passed away on January 24.

We thought there may be former and current NSO employees who knew him and would like to extend their condolences or attend his services.

This is his obituary:

Chesapeake - Parker L. McDaniel Jr., 69 years old, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, formerly of Norfolk, Virginia, went to be with the Lord on January 24, 2017.

Chris AmosGreetings. My name is Chris Amos. I am your Critical Incident Stress Management/ Peer Support Team Director and Staff Chaplain.

I will be providing a support group for personnel who either A) have been adversely impacted by trauma induced stress or B) have an interest in helping those impacted. Traumatic stress comes in many shapes and sizes and has impacted all of us to some degree. It might be from an experience from our childhood, a car crash we were involved in, a physical, financial or relationship crisis we endured. The event itself may be in the rear view mirror of our lives but the lingering impact is still very present with us.
