IMG 1836On November 17, 2016, 14 new deputies graduated the 57th Basic Academy and became official law enforcement officers.

We could not be more proud of these men and women.

A very special thank you goes out to the friends and family members who came to support their loved ones, the training staff for working endlessly with our newest employees, and of course, our guest speaker, Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, Brian Moran.

Check out the pictures from the graduation ceremony for the 57th Class of the Norfolk Sheriff's Office' Basic Academy:


Many thanks to all personnel who participated in our United Way Campaign 2016.

The Norfolk Sheriff’s Office pledged almost $16,000 to the 2016 United Way campaign! Of that total, approximately $11,000 was designated to the Sheriff Bob McCabe Foundation. This is an achievement of which we can be very proud. It is another example of excellence being demonstrated by the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office employees.

The programs that benefit from the Sheriff Bob McCabe Foundation are the Norfolk Sports Camp (free to participants), scholarships to students of the five Norfolk high schools and a multitude of other local charitable organizations that assist youth and senior citizens.

Mass Casualty DrillOn Monday, November 2, the Norfolk City Jail was given an unannounced mass casualty drill by supervisors.

This is a periodic event that tests how well the teams respond to emergency situations where they might encounter dangerous events with injuries, deaths, etc.

The good news is that the team responsible for responding did very well and their supervisors were quite pleased.

Here's a look at what happens during one of these drills, as told by the drill's responding team supervisors:
