The Chesapeake Sheriff's Office has added a new "Certified Jail Manager" (CJMs) to its ranks! Lieutenant Jeremiah Harrell was recently designated a Certified Jail Manager by the American Jail Association (AJA). He joined the ranks of Sheriff Jim O'Sullivan and seven other members of the Chesapeake Sheriff's Office as recipients of this prestigious national certification. According to the AJA, there are now 11 certified jail managers in Hampton Roads; eight of them work for the Chesapeake Sheriff's Office.

The recipients completed a thorough background investigation and an intensive four-hour exam prepared by the AJA and the Jail Manager Certification Commission. The exam was based purely on knowledge and experience; there was no study material. To earn the certification, applicants had to demonstrate competency, professionalism in the field, and strong specialty knowledge. The award recognizes continuing education and growth in the field of corrections management.
The AJA is a national, nonprofit organization that supports the professionals who operate our nation's jails. It is the only national association focusing exclusively on issues specific to the operations of local correctional facilities.

An event for the record books! The numbers are in, Sheriff Jim O'Sullivan's 7th Annual “Dancing With The Athletes” raised a record-breaking $35,436 for Special Olympics Virginia (SOVA)! The glittering dance competition took over the Chesapeake Conference Center Sunday; and what a show it was!

Undersheriff David Rosado and Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Pascal emceed the event as 13 first responders and 13 SOVA athletes teamed up to compete in a “Dancing With the Stars”-like competition. This year’s competition featured first responders from the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office, Chesapeake Police Department, Chesapeake Fire Department, Norfolk Sheriff’s Office, and the Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office.

Tanner Strickland and Senior Deputy R. Lucas (CSO) had the crowd roaring as they danced the robot to “Cold Heart” by Elton John and Dua Lipa. For their performance, they took home the Mirrorball Trophy and the “Fan Favorite” award. Congratulations to Robert Waller and Master Deputy R. Parker (NSO) our top fundraisers!
Thank you to our sponsors (Virginia Extreme Force Cheerleading and Chesapeake Regional Healthcare), everyone who donated, and everyone who attended who made this all possible! See you all on the dance floor next year and enjoy the big smiles in the pictures below.

25/11/2022

On this Thanksgiving, we are extra thankful for our community and we are thinking of every victim of the Walmart shooting and their family members. There are still two people injured in the hospital, one in critical condition and the other in fair/improving condition. Mayor Rick West would like to invite the community to a vigil on Monday, November 28 at 6:00 p.m. at City Park so that we can honor the victims and grieve together.

Today we are focused only of those hurt by Tuesday’s tragic event, but the police investigation continues and we expect to have additional information available tomorrow. All updates will continue to be posted on our Twitter page (www.Twitter.com/AboutChesapeake) and on our website (www.CityOfChesapeake.net/WalmartShooting).

Sheriff Jim O’Sullivan, Undersheriff David Rosado, and Chesapeake TRIAD are working to keep seniors across the city safe. This week, the group met at the sheriff’s administration building to discuss ways we can collaborate to solve the biggest problems facing our senior communities and new projects we can launch together.

TRIAD is a cooperative effort of law enforcement agencies, senior citizens, and senior organizations focused on reducing crimes against our most vulnerable citizens: our seniors. The goal of TRIAD is to reduce the crime rate against seniors by increasing awareness of scams targeting them, strengthening communication between law enforcement and senior communities, and educating seniors on local and state resources that are available in their community.

Don’t forget to sign up for TRIAD’s next information workshop on how to survive inflation. The workshop will take place on November 15, 2022, from 10 – 11 am. You can attend the workshop in person at Lighthouse Pointe or over Zoom. See the flyer for details.

Deputies braved the cold and the rain to raise money for Special Olympics Virginia ahead of our 7th Annual Dancing With the Athletes fundraiser on December 11th at the Chesapeake Conference Center! 13 Special Olympic athletes teamed up with 13 local law enforcement officers to compete in a "Dancing With the Stars"-like competition. The whole event is a heart-warming fundraiser for SOVA.

Beautiful vigil organized by the City of Chesapeake. Our hearts continue to go out to the families and loved ones of the victims. We are all united in grief and determination; truly
We're thankful for our staff members who will be working to keep us safe this Thanksgiving holiday. Sheriff Jim O'Sullivan, Undersheriff David Rosado, and the CSO Command Staff served an early Thanksgiving meal yesterday to the employees who are working today. Sheriff O'Sullivan thanked the staff for sacrificing time with their families to serve our community this holiday weekend.
Thank you and happy Thanksgiving!
Donut worry about a thing. Today, Grassfield High School hosted its 2nd Coffee & Donuts event for first responders. Chesapeake sheriff’s deputies, police officers, and firefighters ate donuts, drank coffee, and interacted with students. Undersheriff David Rosado was the undisputed champion of a donut-eating contest with the students and principal. Special thanks to Grassfield for inviting us!
