A Message from Sheriff Antionette V. Irving

As the new Sheriff for the City of Richmond, I thank the citizens for the trust and confidence placed in me for a new beginning. As we enter into a New Year and a new era for the Richmond City Sheriff’s Office, we look forward to serving the citizens with excellence and ensuring we provide the best level of customer service to all who interact with the various departments of the Sheriff’s Office.

The Richmond City Sheriff’s Office is one of the largest sheriff’s offices in the Commonwealth with nearly 500 sworn and civilian staff members. We are responsible for the operation of the Richmond Justice Center and the safety and security of the residents in our jail. We are also responsible for the safety of the citizens, judges and staff at our three courthouses: John Marshall, Manchester, and Oliver Hill. The Richmond City Sheriff’s Office provides service of civil process and the execution of court ordered documents, transportation of inmates, and the safety of the general public.

As this era of change in the City of Richmond continues, we look forward to building proficient relationships and partnerships with different Richmond agencies and those of our neighboring jurisdictions in the Central Virginia region. We look forward to working with Mayor Levar Stoney and his administration, the members of City Council, Chief Alfred Durham and the officers of the Richmond Police Department, Chief Melvin Carter and members of the Richmond Fire Department, the Richmond Ambulance Authority as we as all other leadership and servant leaders of the Central Virginia community.
