Team NSO TimesYou can join the military at 18 years old, and now, you can become a Norfolk Sheriff’s Office deputy too. The Norfolk Sheriff’s Office announced the policy update in a news release distributed on January 31.

The Norfolk Sheriff’s Office is accepting applications to hire deputies who are 18 years old and above. In the past, deputies were required to be at least 21 years old. But as law enforcement recruiting continues to struggle nationwide, sheriffs and police chiefs are finding new ways to attract more qualified candidates with a passion for public service.

The following staff members were recognized in January for career milestones with the Norfolk Sheriff's Office.

Please offer them your congratulations when you see them.

Dep. McKeon

Norfolk, Va (Jan. 23, 2018) -- A Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Deputy received an award for his brave actions and public service in 2017 ---  including stopping a dangerous knife fight. The American Legion’s Tidewater Post 327 presented the “Deputy of the Year” award to Deputy Philip McKeon on Tuesday.

IMG 1039The Norfolk Sheriff's Office had graduated the first participants in a program to help our inmates with substance abuse and other mental health issues address their illnesses and prepare for a better life upon their release from incarceration.

The ceremony took place on Friday, January 19, 2018 at 10 a.m. Our first graduating class of the Addiction Recovery Grant Program at the Norfolk City Jail consisted of ten inmates, for whom we couldn't be happier.

award sealIn October 2017, seven deputies were recommended for The Sheriff Meritorious Ribbon/Employee Recognition. The ribbon is awarded to sworn employees of the NSO who are involved in an incident where a meritorious act is performed.

The recommendation was based on an incident that occurred on August 16, 2017 when Corporal Gibran Barclift collapsed while at work but was pronounced dead at the hospital. Each deputy received a Positive Action Report for their heroic efforts during this incident from their supervisors and were subsequently recommended for the Sheriff’s Meritorious Performance Ribbon for performing life-saving measures and/or CPR while being under severe duress attempting to preserve the life of Cpl. Barclift.

trophiesI am pleased to announce the following selections for Employees of the 4th Quarter 2017 for the quarter ending December 31, 2017 and Deputies of the Year for two local organizations. In addition, two new awards have been created for Civilian of the Year and Leadership. A revised policy and procedure for the two new awards (Civilian of the Year and Leadership) will be forthcoming.

  • Deputy Phillip McKeon: Deputy of the 4th Quarter
  • Deputy Phillip McKeon: Deputy of the Year Post 327
  • Deputy Michael Conner: Deputy of the Year Post 4809
  • Julia Dunn: Civilian of the 4th Quarter
  • Lisa Hales: Civilian of the Year (NEW)
  • Lt. Jason Giovenco-Montano: Leadership Award (NEW)
