MD Little 16x9On September 1, Master Deputy Efrem Little was promoted to Corporal during a ceremony at the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Training Academy.

Efrem was hired by the NSO in October 2003. A Norfolk native, he was raised by his parents and his older brother, Fred Little Jr. He graduated from Norview High School and worked for the Chrysler Museum of Arts for seven years. Currently he is also working for the Norfolk Tides which he has done for the past 32 years. In the 90’s, he worked for the Norfolk State Basketball team.

Efrem graduated from the NSO Basic Training Academy in 2004 and was assigned to the jail’s D-Team. While on D-Team he worked numerous assignments including the 2nd Floor and as clothing deputy. He was a member of the Probe Team before becoming a member of the Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team (SERT). Less than a year after completing the NSO training academy, he received his Master Deputy designation. He was a 2009 Deputy of the Quarter and Deputy of the Year.

Mr. Morris and Mr. OutlandHere at the NSO, we pride ourselves on the effort we put into providing our inmates with some of the tools they need to change the circumstances in their lives which led to them being incarcerated. In fact, nothing makes us happier than never seeing an inmate return to our custody.

We want to recognize two of our inmates who have tested and completed the GED program within the Norfolk City Jail.


Inmate Jarod Morris completed and received his GED certificate on September 1, 2017, and Inmate Wayne Outland completed and received his GED certificate on September 12, 2017.


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.
