Campaign Announcement


Dear Friends,

The purpose of this letter is to let you know I have decided to run for re-election for the Office of Norfolk Sheriff in 2017 and I am asking for your support.

As Sheriff, I have always been true to these principles; uphold the trust of the citizens, reach out to the community, and maintain professionalism and high morale among the Sheriff’s Office employees.

As Sheriff, the Sheriff’s Office has been recognized for several accomplishments.

  • First sheriff’s office in South Hampton Roads to be accredited by the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission
  • Became a certified Virginia Values Veterans (V3) company and won the Governor’s Award for hiring the most veterans
  • NSO has been voted “Best Places to Work” in Hampton Roads by Inside Business

As an elected official, I strive to save Norfolk taxpayers as much money as possible. To that end, the Sheriff’s Community Work Force has saved Norfolk taxpayers $30 million during my tenure as Sheriff.  

As many people know, for years we have organized youth programs sponsored by the Sheriff Bob McCabe Foundation – a non-profit entity I established to get kids off the streets and teach them life skills and the importance of academics. The program makes meaningful differences in the lives of many children.

Will you join me today to help raise funds for my re-election? I will most likely have an opponent and this money will allow me to get my message out to the voters.

I am always open to new ideas on how to improve the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office. Please let me know your thoughts or provide feedback.  As always, I can be reached at


Bob McCabe
Norfolk Sheriff
