In response to the need for improved, widespread public safety awareness and to assist local sheriffs in protecting the lives and property of citizens throughout Virginia, the Virginia Sheriffs’ Institute (VSI) has announced a campaign that encourages Commonwealth of Virginia residents to become ‘Associate’ and ‘Business’ members of the VSI. Membership appeals will be mailed the week of February 19, 2024. Individuals choosing to join the voluntary program can do so for as little as $25, while businesses can show their support with a $40 contribution. Click HERE for more information about the program and HERE for a fact sheet to assist with questions. A copy of the letter that is being mailed can be accessed HERE. For additional assistance, click HERE for a PSA and HERE for a press release that can be used before the mailing.
