recruitsThe field of law enforcement is ever changing. With that being said, sworn staff often retire, relocate, and sometimes switch careers in general. As a way to fill a handful of needed deputy sheriff positions inside of the Norfolk City Jail, the Norfolk Sheriff's Office held its first-ever open recruitment day.

We are pleased to announce that nearly 30 applicants showed up to the administration building on Saturday, July 29 in hopes of earning a spot on #TeamNSO. With applications filled out and ready to go, they gathered in the large training classroom to hear personal stories from senior staff members and take both the written and physical agility assessments.

Sheriff Baron would like to share with you what Deputy Smith wrote in his own words. He was presented with a certificate from the ESGR that is proudly displayed inside of the jail.

"I am incredibly grateful to be employed by the Norfolk Sheriff's Office under Sheriff Joseph Baron. The sheriff's office has been very supportive of my service with the Army National Guard and of myself as an individual.

We are proud of this achievement, and we hope you will be as well.
