NSO Masthead


Dickens GEDCassandra Dickens is 29 years old, and she is determined to start a new life. She has become the first woman in six years to earn her GED inside the Norfolk Jail.

Mitchell GradIn 2016, Cpl. M. Mitchell started her degree at St. Leo University, and this month, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in Human Resources. Besides working full time at the NSO, Cpl. Mitchell has four children and five grandchildren. 

Deputy Weeks PhotoThere is sometimes the perception that deputy sheriffs who work inside the jail are just “babysitting” inmates or are “turnkeys.” This couldn’t be further from the truth, and Deputy A. Weeks is fighting to break that stereotype.

WAM 1The Norfolk Sheriff's Office teamed up with the YWCA to help promote Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: sexual violence and gender relations.  

PREA pic2Inmates at the Norfolk City Jail are being kept safe and protected from all forms of sexual abuse. After an audit of the facility, the Norfolk City Jail gained its Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) certification on April 27, 2018.

CTEAM“My team works together. Even before we were approved for kelly hours overtime, people would offer to stay to help, on their own time,” Lt. Morrow said.

It’s the NSO Motto: treat others as we wish to be treated.

Dunn PatrickThe Norfolk Law Enforcement Community lost one of its brothers, with the passing of retired Major Pat Dunn. Major Dunn joined the Norfolk Police Department when he was 18 years old.
