Community Programs


The Newport News Sheriff's Office offers many valuable services to our citizens as well as programs for crime prevention. Please follow the links below to discover more.

Offender Reentry


Across Virginia, jurisdictions release thousands of offenders from jails and prisons each year. The successful transition of offenders back into the community— without their re-offending, is critical to community safety.

In fact, research indicates that involving offenders in a comprehensive process that addresses substance abuse and mental health needs, education and employment training could help break the cycle of criminality and provide the opportunity for offenders to lead productive lives upon their return.

Public Information

The Sheriff's Office point-of-contact for all media requests is the Public Information Officer (PIO). The role of the PIO is to maintain positive and open communications with the media and ensure citizens' awareness of items relating to the Sheriff's Office, public safety, and both state and local laws.

In addition, The PIO is responsible for providing a link for events and information between the Sheriff’s Office and the people it serves.
