Did you know 96% of the inmates inside the Norfolk City Jail will return to our communities? Did you know the Norfolk Sheriff's Office offers evidence-based programs to assist offenders in learning skills and fulfilling requirements they can use upon their release? One of those programs is our GED program.

Yesterday we celebrated alongside five inmates (four males and one female) who successful completed the necessary coursework, passed their tests, and obtained their GED while incarcerated. Lieutenant Colonel Gill was on-hand to present the graduates their certificates and shared the following with them, "It fills my heart to see people come out of here and be successful. Don't stop here. Keep going. Keep learning. Keep progressing. You're worth it!"

Thank you to everyone who makes this program possible. The entire staff of the NSO Programs Division, Norfolk Public Schools (NPS) and the NPS teachers who teach the GED program, the deputies who are responsible for getting the inmates to their scheduled classes, and to our Director of Grants who secured the grant for the program.

Congratulations graduates!

If you've bumped into a Norfolk Sheriff's Office Deputy recently you may have noticed a new addition to their uniforms. Sheriff Baron recently approved new branch pins for Norfolk Sheriff's Office military veterans. The new pins are colorful and clearly state the branch of the military in which they served. Previously, employees wore an American flag pin with their ribbons to signify their service, but the new pins make the branch easily identifiable. The branch pins are worn under their NSO badge.

With so many active duty and retired military in our area we hope these pins show a common bond between our employees and the citizens of our community. Thank you to all of those who have served our country.

ICYMI: Earlier this month the Norfolk Sheriff's Office and the Sheriff Joe Baron Foundation hosted our annual Senior Fest event. This year, the event showcased the signing of a new TRIAD agreement for the City of Norfolk. The agreement was signed by Norfolk Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander, Sheriff Baron, Attorney General Jason Miyares, Norfolk Fire-Rescue Assistant Chief Carroll, Norfolk Police Department Chief Talbot, and Bob Batcher of Primeplus Senior Centers. This new TRAID agreement renews the city's public safety commitment to protecting the senior population.

For those who are not familiar with TRIAD, this is a partnership between public service agencies (law enforcement/fire department) and the senior community focusing on reducing crimes against seniors. In the City of Norfolk there is a TRIAD meeting held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Norfolk PrimePlus Senior Center located at 7300 Newport Avenue Norfolk, VA 23505.
