Continuing a tradition that goes back many years, the Norfolk Sheriff's Office has once again teamed up with PortAlliance Federal Credit Union, and joined this year by the Sheriff Joe Baron Foundation, to provide turkeys and goods for a holiday meal to Norfolk senior citizens, churches, and families with children in need.

Deliveries were made on the morning of December 19 by Sheriff Baron and members of the NSO staff.

Afterwards, we sent this message (slightly edited) to Robin Engelhart with PortAlliance, who did a great job spearheading the effort on their behalf, and to whom we are most appreciative:

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.
