Woody group shot 16x9John “Woody” Woodward is retiring in January after serving the citizens of Norfolk for 48.5 years - 27 at NPD and 21.5 at the NSO. Sheriff Baron worked with him at NPD for over 30 years.

John has worked in different divisions during his tenure at the NSO (as a sworn staff member and later as a civilian) and has mastered each task he was assigned.

As a Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Assessor, John was recognized with the 2014 VLEPSC commissioners’ award, given annually to someone who is distinguished in the field of accreditation.

presentation 4The 2017 Hampton Roads Hero Games are in the books, and the Norfolk Sheriff's Office's team made us proud. After coming in first overall in the inaugural games last year, NSO placed a solid second this year.

First place for 2017 went to our brothers and sisters with the Norfolk Police Department. We offer our sincere congratulations to them.

In addition to those from Norfolk, first responders from Chesapeake, Hampton, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, and Newport News competed in the event.

Give LifeSome holiday gifts are fun; some sweet; some extravagant. But none is more meaningful than the gift of life.

The Red Cross says blood supplies always run low during the holidays, so as we have in past years, the Norfolk Sheriff's Office organized a blood drive to help out. It was held on December 6 in the Training Center. We provided food, entertainment, and a raffle prize to participants.

We collected 19 units of blood during the drive, which the Red Cross said will impact 57 lives.

Great job, Team NSO!
