Eight of our Sheriff's deputies were among 57 public safety employees from our area who achieved advanced crisis intervention team certification last week. The 50-hour training addressed the core principles of appropriately responding to emergency calls involving individuals experiencing a mental health crisis, a substance use disorder or difficulty with a special need. Class participants learned how to recognize people in crisis, de-escalate situations and encourage people who need treatment or support to access services. The scenario and classroom-based curriculum was delivered in a socially distanced setting at George Mason University and included role playing scenarios as well as expert instruction from behavioral health professionals, advocates and community members. #CIT

05/12/2020

After over 40 years of service in the law enforcement community, PFC Warren “Red” Henry has put on a duty belt for a final time. He retired from the Virginia State Police before joining the Sheriff’s Office in 2008. He spent his tenure in Courts, leaving his mark and a smile every step of the way. His lively personality will be greatly missed. He leaves behind big shoes for his son, PFC Adam Henry, to fill. Best of luck in retirement, Red!
