twitter icon 16x9After their visit to Norfolk to play ODU, Florida Atlantic University coach Lane Kiffen posted on Twitter about a letter he received from NSO Corporal Juan Serrano about an encounter Serrano and Lt. Meryah Breeden had with one of the FAU players after the game.

In his emailed letter to Kiffen, Cpl. Serrano wrote:

Good Morning,
I am sending this email on behalf of the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Community Affairs Division in Norfolk, VA.
On October 7, 2017 FAU Football played ODU Football and the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office was there working the game for security purposes which I’m sure your local law enforcement agencies do as well. Although ODU lost it was a win for us from a security standpoint.

A whole slew of little ghosts and goblins had a frightfully spooktacular time at the Mermaid City's Fourth Annual Trunk or Treat event.

It was a Norfolk Community Safety Event held as a safe way for children to get candy and enjoy the festive activities, blue lights, fire trucks and ladders, and plenty of wrapped candy!

Our staff joined the Norfolk Police and Fire Departments to welcome thousands of kids (not to mention a lot of adults) in costume for a safe trick or treat. Officers hosted the event - the largest of its type in the city - in the parking lot at the Target on N. Military Highway.

This event gives citizens, businesses, city organizations, law enforcement and first responders a chance to get together, share in some holiday fun and interact in a positive environment.
