One of the many programs Sheriff Moore had envisioned bring to the Portsmouth Sheriffs Office along with DARE AND ReEntry is the STEP PROGRAM (Stabilizing Transitional Employment Program) to assist those individuals who may have made the wrong choices at some point in their lives and is now looking for a second chance.

The first person to apply for this program was Mr. K. Collins. Mr. Collins became a member of the PSO Family last year as a part-time employee. Since coming on board, he has exhibited excellent work habits. He is always on time, dependable, and never complains about the task at hand.

Sheriff Moore yesterday offered Mr. Collins a full-time position. Mr. Collins became extremely emotional at the thought that someone believed in him and was willing to give him a second chance.
Congratulations, Mr. Collins.

Good morning everyone!

Just to give you a little background in some of the things The Portsmouth Sheriff's Department does for the citizens in the city of Portsmouth; We currently provide lawn care service for 130+ of our senior and disadvantaged citizens as well as, build handicap ramps at no cost to the citizens in need. These services are provided by inmates who qualify to participate in our work release program, working along the side of our with Deputies. Since the pandemics arrival, our work release staff has depleted tremendously. The inmates participating in this program were eligible for release because of their nonviolent charges with approval of the courts. Because of this change, these services have continued with the outstanding deputies assigned to the work release program. Now, to assist our departments efforts - we are seeking YOUR assistance in cleaning up neglected areas in the city of Portsmouth. I am seeking volunteers to partner up with the Portsmouth Sheriff's Department to start this community cleanup project city-wide. We are calling on citizens from all areas of the city, Greek organizations, church families, civic leagues, First Responders, and candidates seeking elected office in the city.

I know this is such short notice but, we are looking to start 8:30 Saturday morning at the 100 block of Cavalier Blvd (close to the corner of Cavalier and Main). City Manager, LaVoris Pace, has been gracious enough to partner with us by providing city resources to assist in this cleanup effort. We will practice social distancing and masks and gloves will be required! This is an opportunity to put the Unity in Community! We can no longer sit back and wonder who will do these things, for it is up to us to take care of our communities.

Comment below and/or reach out to me or anyone in the Sheriff's office if you are interested. Thank you!
