It may have been a windy, rainy weekend, but that didn't stop the Special Olympics Virginia athletes from giving it their all during the Fall Championship games. On Saturday night, Sheriff Baron, who serves as the Region 3 Regional Director, carried the Flame of Hope into the Opening Ceremonies alongside Special Olympics Virginia athlete Marcus Leggett, Jr. and law enforcement representatives from throughout Hampton Roads. Sheriff Baron then lit the Olympic Cauldron to symbolize the start of the games!

Throughout the weekend, athletes had the opportunity to compete in a number of events including bowling, bocce, golf, volleyball, roller skating, soccer and more! Norfolk Sheriff's Office personnel and law enforcement from around the region volunteered to assist with the events and were excited to see the athletes return to the field. Congratulations to all of the athletes on a job well done!

When Sheriff Baron took over as Sheriff in 2017, he realized the importance of publicly celebrating the success of NSO personnel. Instead of sending certificates and accolades through inter-office mail, he likes to personally thank employees for a job well done and congratulate them in front of their colleagues. Last week we celebrated several NSO personnel who completed Leadership classes and received Continuous Service Awards.

Congratulations to you all!

Thank you for the treats and for your continued support, True Blue - We Stand Behind You. It means so much to us!

We love being out in the community and last weekend we had the opportunity to attend two wonderful events.

On Saturday morning Sheriff Baron and team members from the NSO Community Affairs Division stopped by the 10th Annual Community Service Day at Shiloh Baptist Church where they provided health and wellness information, vaccinations, food, and much more to citizens.

Following the event at Shiloh Baptist Church we visited Riverside Baptist Church (Rbc Norfolk) for their yearly picnic and had a great time. Lt. Breeden and Deputy Brown from the NSO Community Affairs Division even took home the first place trophy in the co****le tournament!

Congratulations to Ms. Pam Castellanos from the NSO Programs Department for completing the requirements necessary to receive certification as an Anger Management Specialist. The certification through the National Association of Anger Management (NAMA) requires anger management specialists to complete a series of classes and training to understand the nature of anger, the role of trigger thoughts, and the role of stress as it relates to anger, just to name a few.

Professional Development improves personal knowledge and understanding, in addition to organization values. We are proud of our Chaplin, Ms. Pam Castellanos achieving a Certification in Anger Management. She is now our main Anger Management Instructor for our Inmate Pathways Programs classes and Court ordered Classes. This is one way the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Programs Department strives to make a difference in the lives of others by offering Evidence Based Classes to persons in our care.
