award sealRecently, one of our deputies brought something to our attention that we feel is deserving of recognition and praise from everyone here at NSO.

Here’s the text of the positive action report filed about this:

This positive action report is to recognize quality of character and selfless acts of kindness that Master Deputy James Burgess showed on the night of July 8, 2017.

Master Deputy Burgess has worked for Regal Theaters at MacArthur Center for the last two years and has become very familiar with most of the regular customers and always has taken the time to talk and be friendly, and is considered a friend to most and has become part of the movie experience.

Kaila 16x9I don't want to make too big of a deal over it, but if you haven't heard, August 18 was my last day as your P.I.O here at the Norfolk Sheriff's Office.

Don't worry- it was completely on my terms.

People love to say that if they had the chance to move away and start fresh, they would. However, when that chance comes around, most people don't do it. Sometimes its out of fear. Sometimes its because of family responsibilities. Other times, its because we are so comfortable in our everyday lives that the sheer thought of changing things up sends us into an eternal panic attack.

I recently had the chance to make a life change and I took it.

Summer Camps 1On behalf of the Sheriff Joe Baron Foundation, Sheriff Baron would like to take a moment to thank each and every individual who helped make the inaugural sports and summer camps a wild success.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better group of counselors, volunteers, and kids,” Sheriff Baron said.

The two types of camps offered kicked off in the last week of June with the Sports Camps.

Featuring specific camps for baseball, football and basketball, dozens of kids got tips from some of the best athletes and coaches in the area.
