Sheriff Scott H. Jenkins and the Culpeper Sheriff’s Office would like to express their tremendous appreciation for tonight’s Culpeper Christmas Parade participants and spectators. We were pleased at the huge number of people who were able to join safely in this festive Christmas celebration. A special thanks to Tim Smith, Tickle, and the cast of Discovery’s Moonshiners for their appearance.

And of course, no Christmas Parade would be complete without Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus to light the way!

“In this year with its special challenges, it is heartwarming to see our community come together. My deepest thanks to everyone who helped make sure that this hometown family Christmas event went off spectacularly.“

Christmas Parade 2020

We appreciate the efforts of Mayor Mike Olinger, town manager Chris Hively, and those members of the Town Council who have supported our efforts of a Main Street Christmas Parade in 2020. Unfortunately, due to Virginia Department of Health restrictions we are unable to host this event within the town limits.

This will be our third year hosting a Christmas parade for the Culpeper community. Although we have met continued resistance by some within the Town Council, we are pleased to announce our event will be even more festive than previous years.

“The Culpeper Christmas Parade” will be held on Sunday, December 6, 2020 in Brandy Station at 5:00 PM, in partnership with the Brandy Volunteer Fire Department. This great hometown family event will also include a Christmas Village featuring Santa Shops, lots of lights, music, nativity scenes, floats, concessions, and one very special guest from the North Pole. Sponsorship packages are available to support the “Sheriff’s Christmas for Kids” program. We thank you for your continued support.

Nation braces for election violence, ‘guns, batons, Molotov cocktails’

Election Security — Statement of Sheriff Scott H. Jenkins on Security During the Election:

My office has received many inquiries from the community about security during the election. For obvious reasons I cannot reveal the substance of our planning but the citizens of Culpeper should rest assured that I and my deputies are prepared to protect the right of every citizen to vote on election day.

I have met with the head of the electoral board in Culpeper and he is aware of my planning and preparation.

As election day approaches and on election day itself, we will continue to monitor events in Culpeper and in surrounding jurisdictions which might impinge upon the rights of citizens to vote.

Regarding security let me be clear: my office will deal swiftly and appropriately with unlawful activity from any individual or group, no matter political affiliation, to protect every citizen’s right to cast their ballot.

We are fortunate to live in a community with strong ties of affection and respect between those of us who make our home here. In the end we are all neighbors and we all know how to rely on each other in times of difficulty. I plan to rely on that strength if the need arises.

Citizens should prepare to vote on election day with confidence and a sense of security. I look forward to seeing you at the polls to extend my hand in friendship-one neighbor to another.

More than one-third of the nation is expecting the election in two weeks to create “anarchy and chaos” resulting in potentially lethal violence.

Today the Virginia Supreme Court confirmed what people with common sense have known all along -- the Culpeper Sheriff’s Office cooperation with federal law enforcement on illegal immigration is entirely appropriate under the law.

Today's decision denied a suit filed by Culpeper residents to stop Culpeper Sheriff Scott Jenkins’ cooperation with the federal 287(g) program. That program is used to identify illegal aliens in the country who are housed in local jails on other charges.

Michael McClary and Christina Stockton filed the suit naming the Sheriff and the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors as defendants, alleging that expenditures associated with the program were unconstitutional and should be prohibited.

The Court brushed aside McClary and Stockton's suit, saying that it amounted to nothing more than their disagreement with the Sheriff’s policy decision to enter into the 287(g) agreement. The Supreme Court’s decision this morning upholds an earlier decision throwing the case out of court.

The Supreme Court also said that, as constitutional officers, Sheriffs are not subordinate to the local government. Sheriffs' powers exist independently from the local government and do not rely on them for authority to act.

"I am very pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision. I knew I was right all along in my understanding of the 287(g) program, and am pleased that the Virginia Supreme Court has confirmed my understanding. I appreciate the enormous community support and will continue to do everything in my power to keep this community safe while upholding and defending our Constitution."

Deadwood Trail Haunted Forest

Over the past three years, the Deadwood Trail Haunted Forest has evolved bringing something new each year, only getting better, and the same was planned for this year as well.

However, after numerous conversations, we chose NOT to open Deadwood Trail for the 2020 season. The safety concerns of our volunteers, actors and the community is important to everyone.

We know that this is a disappointment to many, but this will allow us to continue to work on our haunt and provide you with bigger and better attractions in 2021. We thank you for the enormous community support each year and we look forward to seeing everyone next year!

On October 3, 2020 at 1:53am Sergeant Shawn Walters observed two motorcycles racing on South West Street in the area of the Culpeper Baptist Church traveling over triple the speed limit.

One of the motorcycles fled down Elm Street then onto South Main. The rider attempted to make a left turn onto Germanna Highway and crashed. The driver, Bobby V. Settle, age 27 of Culpeper, was charged with the following:

-46.2-817 Eluding
-46.2-301 Drive on Revoked license
-46.2-862 Reckless by speed 78/25 mph zone

"We're pleased Mr. Settle complied with instructions and was taken into custody without further resistance. He refused treatment from Culpeper Rescue Squad and we thank them for their swift response."

"Once again, we ask that drivers consider the risks involved when they choose to flee from deputies. Please comply and have your case heard in court instead of endangering the lives of deputies and citizens."
