Military Times has named the Newport News Sheriff’s Office to its ‘Best for Vets: Law Enforcement’ list.

“Veterans have many qualities that make them a good fit to join us,” said Sheriff Gabe Morgan.

Men and women exiting the military use the information to guide them toward their next career, publication officials said in releasing the list on December 13.

The NNSO was recognized for its recruiting strategies that are focused on department culture and policies aimed at attracting veterans and reservists.

“We appreciate their strong work ethic, good character and their ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds,” Sheriff Morgan added.

The NNSO demonstrated its commitment to extending hiring preferences to veterans in answering the publication’s nearly 100-question survey. Agencies are evaluated on their military recruiting, service member-related policies, rules for reservists and departmental culture.

Best for Vets: Law Enforcement 2017 is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an agency a good fit for military veterans and reservists. The rankings are published in full in the issues of Army TimesNavy TimesAir Force Times and Marine Corps Times on newsstands now.
