deputies riptideDeputies from NSO played a key role in a widely reported felon sweep conducted on March 1 by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as part of a months-long investigation called "Operation Riptide."

The sweep was the culmination of an investigation that began in Fall, 2016 and targeted people suspected of violent crimes in Norfolk, or illegally in possession of firearms.

Six NSO deputies used three vans to provide transportation for the suspects as they were arrested. The assitance was requested by the Norfolk Police Department.

amos reading letterLast year, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made the decision to protest perceived injustices committed by law enforcement officers by choosing to kneel during the rendering of the National Anthem before games. 

Shortly after Kaepernick began doing this, former Norfolk Police Officer and current Critical Incident Stress Management/ Peer Support Team Director and Staff Chaplain for NSO Chris Amos wrote an open letter to the NFL player and posted it on Facebook explaining why he thought Kaepernick's negative statements about law enforcement officers and agencies were unfair, comparing how the sacrifices made by LEOs every day stack up with those associated with a career in the NFL.
