News releases and stories from NSO Times

award sealIn October 2017, seven deputies were recommended for The Sheriff Meritorious Ribbon/Employee Recognition. The ribbon is awarded to sworn employees of the NSO who are involved in an incident where a meritorious act is performed.

The recommendation was based on an incident that occurred on August 16, 2017 when Corporal Gibran Barclift collapsed while at work but was pronounced dead at the hospital. Each deputy received a Positive Action Report for their heroic efforts during this incident from their supervisors and were subsequently recommended for the Sheriff’s Meritorious Performance Ribbon for performing life-saving measures and/or CPR while being under severe duress attempting to preserve the life of Cpl. Barclift.

trophiesI am pleased to announce the following selections for Employees of the 4th Quarter 2017 for the quarter ending December 31, 2017 and Deputies of the Year for two local organizations. In addition, two new awards have been created for Civilian of the Year and Leadership. A revised policy and procedure for the two new awards (Civilian of the Year and Leadership) will be forthcoming.

  • Deputy Phillip McKeon: Deputy of the 4th Quarter
  • Deputy Phillip McKeon: Deputy of the Year Post 327
  • Deputy Michael Conner: Deputy of the Year Post 4809
