The Voice of Virginia’s Sheriffs & Deputies

The Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Relay for Life team proudly donated $21,000 to the American Cancer Society. The funds were raised through various fundraisers including No Shave fundraisers for deputies, Shades of Awareness (nail color) for deputies, a Halloween bake sale, and a bowling tournament. Lieutenant Colonel Grizzard had the opportunity to share why this cause is important to her and the rest of the Relay for Life team  as she presented the check to Laura Fien with the American Cancer Society.

Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Deputy Ryan Moore was recognized as the Deputy of the Year by VFW Auxiliary Post 3160 Norfolk during their Civic Awards Ceremony and by VFW Post 4809  during their Community Activities Award Program.

Last year the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office began working alongside the Norfolk Police Department to provide enhanced law enforcement visibility in Downtown Norfolk. On August 5, 2022, Deputy Moore was working a part-time assignment in the Downtown Norfolk area when he was shot during a quadruple shooting. Due to Deputy Moore’s actions and the actions of others on scene that night, the suspect was apprehended. Deputy Moore was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and has made a fast recovery.

For his actions that night, Deputy Moore was previously awarded the Sheriff’s Meritorious Performance Ribbon and the Sheriff’s Purple Heart Award during the NSO Graduation and Awards Ceremony in November 2022.
