Sheriff Joseph "Joe" P. Baron is a native of Norfolk, Virginia and has dedicated his life to keeping Norfolk safe, with more than 36  years of law enforcement experience. After serving 26 years with the Norfolk Police Department, he has dedicated the last 10 years to the Norfolk Sheriff's Office. He has over 20 years of experience in leadership roles between the two organizations. In November of 2017, he was honored to be elected as Norfolk's Sheriff. 

Sheriff Baron's vision is to make a positive difference in the lives of others as far as we can reach. He encourages staff to look for opportunities every day to help others. Further, he created the NSO motto; to serve in the spirit of the Golden Rule: treat others the way we wish to be treated. Joe says, "It's all about setting the tone for the culture of our organization."

After becoming Sheriff of Norfolk in 2017, he created a new mission statement: to be a value-driven organization committed to public safety, public service, and public trust, while creating an environment of life, health, safety, and security. The Norfolk Sheriff's Office values are integrity in all things, respect at all times, duty without prejudice, pride without ego, and team before self.
