Connolly, Volunteer Bill Richey, Sheriff Stan Barry"I see a roomful of crime fighters,” said Fairfax County Sheriff Stan Barry at an April 23, 2009, luncheon to recognize the nearly 300 active volunteers who work in the county jail. “Deputies focus on security. Volunteers focus on humanitarianism. Both groups complement each other to make a great crime fighting team.”

Sheriff’s Office volunteers provide inmate programs at the Adult Detention Center and the Pre-Release Center, including life skills, job skills, parenting, personal improvement, drug and alcohol addiction recovery, educational advancement and spirituality.

“We in the Sheriff's Office can create an environment that makes people want to change,” said Barry. “But without someone standing there, offering a helping hand, change can't happen.”

Noah Freedman (Springfield District), Celine Baker (Springfield District), Bill Richey (Hunter Mill District), Ben Perchick (Hunter Mill District) and Norma “Timmie” Edwards (Braddock District) received special recognition as the most outstanding volunteers for 2008.

If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming a Sheriff’s Office volunteer, please call 2nd Lt. Patty Chartak at 703-246-2845 or e-mail the Sheriff's Office.
