At the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office, our values are to have integrity in all things, respect for all others, duty without prejudice, pride without ego, and team before self. Deputy Conner Deputy Michael Conner is an example of living out those values.

On July 17, 2017, an inmate reached out to Deputy Conner for help. He explained that he had been transported from another jail, and that he was supposed to be released. He claimed he had paperwork to prove it.

Instead of discounting the information being provided by the inmate, Deputy Conner was compassionate and understanding, and he listened to the inmate. He retrieved the paperwork from the inmate, and gave it to the Records Department. Records confirmed that when the Norfolk City Jail took custody of the inmate from the previous jail, a document was missing. After verifying his correct release date with the Department of Corrections, it was confirmed that he did not have 30 days to serve in Norfolk, and he was promptly released. If it wasn’t for Deputy Conner’s attention and focus, the matter may not have been addressed as quickly as it was, and the inmate could have been held in custody longer than necessary.

Also, on August 16, 2017, the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office suffered a great loss with the sudden death of Corporal Barclift, while he was on duty. Deputy Conner was the first responder on the scene. He called for assistance right away, performed CPR, and assisted, until he was relieved by EMS. Once again, Deputy Conner didn’t hesitate to take action.

Deputy Conner is known for always being willing to lend a helping hand to his fellow deputies on C Team. He is an asset to the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office, and has demonstrated that he upholds our motto: "We Serve in the Spirit of the Golden Rule: Treat Others the Way We would Like to be Treated.”

Because of his exemplary service, Deputy Conner was honored as “Deputy of the Year” at the VFW Post 4809 on March 22, 2018.
