STOPinc event 7 16x9A recent event held by a long-respected community service organization brought out a bevy of appreciative first responders, including Sheriff Joe Baron.

The event was called "Day of Remembrance," called an "appreciation of First Responders and Youth Safety event, and held to honor first responders the week of the anniversary of 9/11. It was organized by STOP Inc., which stands for Supporting Transformational Opportunities for People.

According to a note from one of the organizers, Sheriff Baron "added a special touch as he sat and drew the Snoopy Character, colored and engaged both the youth and adults. We had a lot of fun."

McInnis EOW 16x9v2All Staff:

It is with great sadness I report to you the passing of Major Ron McInnis. Ron died in his home with his family there supporting him. He fought his illness with courage long and hard for over four years, which is remarkable for anyone.

Ron was a good friend to me and a beloved member of the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office family. He served in just about every area of the Sheriff’s Office with a smile, respect, care, and dignity. He was full of compassion and never wavered to speak up as an advocate for others. Ron truly knew the meaning of the “golden rule” because he always treated others the way he wanted to be treated. His leadership and presence will be greatly missed.

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.
