Chesapeake Sheriff’s deputies are warning about another scam across the city. This time around, scammers are demanding money for a “pending legal matter.” The Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office says out of the dozens of people these scammers called, at least two fell victim, handing over thousands of dollars.
Splash at the Lake
While most went to the ocean and Chesapeake Bay to cool off from the intense heat on Saturday, just over a dozen had the time of their lives on a Chesapeake lake. The Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office celebrated the fifth year of “Splash at the Lake.” The annual event gives members of Sheriff Jim O’Sullivan’s Elite Unit a day of tubing, water skiing and boat rides at Oak Grove Lake Park.
Time is running out for Undersheriff David Rosado’s Public Safety Pickleball Tournament on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at the Greenbrier Sports Park in Chesapeake. The event is a fun opportunity to meet up with fellow law enforcement officers from across the Commonwealth. It is also a fundraiser for Special Olympics Virginia. There will be 3 divisions: men’s, women’s, and co-ed. There will be prizes for the 1st and 2nd Place winners of each division. There will also be door prizes and giveaways for all participating players. The deadline to register is August 24, 2023. Please see the flyer for details.
National Night Out
This National Night Out, CSO deputies joined the Chesapeake Police Department, the Chesapeake Fire Department, and 22 civic leagues/neighborhoods in an annual partnership to foster community building and promote positive interactions between public safety and residents.
Deputies spread out: printing Digital ID Kid kits to residents in River Walk and Deep Creek, cooking hot dogs & burgers in Ahoy Acres, WINNING the annual canoe race in historic South Norfolk, playing games in MacDonald Manor and Woodard’s Mill, and leading a bicycle parade in Cedar Lakes (just to name a few).
In addition, the Deep Creek Ruritans hosted their annual Public Safety Awards, naming Senior Deputy D. Kubitschek-Brann their Deputy of the Year for her dedication to duty when coming to rescue to trapped motorists involved in a multi-vehicle crash.
