Senator Ralph S. Northam Recognized by the Virginia Sheriffs' Association

Senator Ralph S. Northam will receive the Outstanding Legislative Service Award by the Virginia Sheriffs' Association. He was elected by the Association to receive this prestigious award because of his support for sheriffs and deputy sheriffs across the Commonwealth.

"Because of Senator Northam's insistence on supporting law enforcement and his relationships with other members of the Virginia Senate and House of Delegates, the Association has chosen to recognize him this year with the Outstanding Legislative Service Award. Senator Northam has the respect of the other members of the General Assembly and was a spokesman supporting public safety on numerous occasions in the 2011 General Assembly," said John W. Jones, executive director, Virginia Sheriffs Association.

The Virginia Sheriffs' Association represents more than 8,600 sheriffs and deputies across Virginia, and each year recognizes certain legislators who have demonstrated their willingness to support law enforcement legislative initiatives in the Virginia General Assembly.

The award will be presented to Senator Northam by the sheriffs in his district, at the Virginia Sheriffs Association annual banquet on September 13, 2011, at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott.
