Newport News Sheriff’s Office deputies, medical personnel, and other staff continue to provide essential services for the COVID-19 outbreak.
Recently, the Main Street and Jefferson Avenue 7-Eleven in Newport News donated several boxes of disposable gloves. Corporal Bailey and Deputy Walls accepted this critical personal protective gear from store manager Robert Bullock. The gloves will help the staff continue to work safely as they work to keep those in our care safe and healthy.
Jail staff was treated to a delicious lunch from Phoebus Dive Bar in Hampton thanks to the thoughtfulness of An Achievable Dream school. Owner Sean Pepe delivered trays of wings, barbecue and all the trimmings. The restaurant wrote on its Facebook page, “We had the pleasure of feeding the Newport News Sheriff’s Office today. Thanks for what you do.”
The sheriff’s office is a partner with An Achievable Dream to build positive relationships with the students. Deputies are at the school daily to greet them as they arrive, share conversation over breakfast and take part in small group activities.
With school being closed because of coronavirus concerns, An Achievable Dream wanted to show its appreciation for all the work done by the sheriff’s office during this time.
The Newport News Sheriff’s Office is grateful for the community’s support during these uncertain times.
