scam alert 16x9There's another scam being perpetrated on the public by someone posing as an employee of the Norfolk Sheriff's Office which we want to warn everyone about. It's called ther "Green Dot Scam" after a brand of payment card which is commonly used for paying off the scammer.

This is an edited version of an account of one victim, who fortunately, reported the incident rather than falling for it:

City of Norfolk seal 16x9On Tuesday May 23, 2017, the City of Norfolk passed their Fiscal Year 2018 budget. City Council approved a 2 percent salary increase for NSO civilian employees and a 2.47 percent step increase for sworn NSO staff.  All actions will be effective on your January 12, 2018 paycheck. Additionally, City Council approved a one-time compensation bonus for sworn NSO staff, which you will see on your July 28, 2017 paycheck.  Sworn employees with at least one year of employment are eligible to receive the bonus.

Operation Chill ticketWhat can bring a smile to a child's face on a hot day more quickly than being recognized for doing something good, AND getting a free icy, slushy beverage in the process?

This summer, the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office will be one of hundreds of law enforcement agencies that will participate in 7-Eleven’s "Operation Chill." 

This community outreach program is designed to reduce crime and enhance relations between law enforcement agencies and youth.
